Peru Presents An Initiative Against Corruption


The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Néstor Popolizio, will submit for approval in the 48th General Assembly of the OAS (Organization of American States) initiatives for the fight against corruption in Peru.

Popolizio heads the Peruvian delegation that will participate in the assembly, which takes place today and tomorrow in Washington DC, United States.

This delegation, said El Peruano, is composed of the head of Women and Vulnerable Populations, María Alejandra Mendieta, in her capacity as president of the Inter-American Commission of Women (CIM); the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hugo de Zela; and the permanent representative of Peru before the OAS, Ana Rosa Valdivieso.

The General Assembly – the principal organ of the OAS – gathers the foreign ministers of the continent each year to adopt decisions that guide the work of the organization and its organs in matters related to the strengthening of democracy, human rights, integral development and hemispheric security”, wrote El Peruano.

The proposal Peru will present at the OAS assembly is for a follow-up mechanism and implementation of the Lima Commitment “Democratic Governance against Corruption”, adopted by the Heads of State and Government that participated in the VIII Summit of the Americas, in Lima.

Also, the delegation headed by Popolizio will take proposals on access to public information, protection of personal data and inclusive dialogue to address social conflict in investment for integral development, among others.
