Located in the southern Ica region of Peru, the newly constructed Pisco International Airport was inaugurated by President Ollanta Humala yesterday.
The President emphasized that not only will the airport bring developments to the region, but other infrastructure projects as well will benefit Ica natives.
“There is a development plan for Ica. This nationalist administration has a clear development vision for Ica,” President Humala emphasized according to _Andina_ news agency.
The Minister of Transport and Communications, Jose Gallardo, said that the road, port and infrastructure related projects are bound to bring social changes to locals.
“This is aimed at fostering growth in the region and is part of a portfolio of works, of a set of transport and communications infrastructure projects that determines a new generation of development,” explained the Minister.
The airport required an estimated investment of US$44.38 million to complete.
More modern airports similar to those in Lambayeque, Piura and now Pisco’s are planned to be constructed in more regions throughout the country.
