The fight against corruption is one of Vizcarra’s main goals.
The President of Peru, Martín Vizcarra, said yesterday that one of his main challenges as Head of State will be "to achieve reconciliation" in his country.According to La Vanguardia, Vizcarra said during a ceremony held at the Foreign Trade Society, that Peru is seen abroad "as a country with potential," but acknowledged that his country is "in the middle of some problems that generate obstacles" for its growth.
"That is why one of my main challenges as President is to achieve a reconciliation within our country," he said, according to this media.
However, Vizcarra agrees that the country’s infrastructure doesn’t benefit everyone. “There are cities without access to services, such as drinking water”, wrote La Vanguardia.Another important goal for Vizcarra is to fight corruption “at all cost”, as he said in a previous visit to the Amazonian region of San Martín. To him, crime impedes the country’s development and the execution of important projects.
"Corruption doesn’t allow Peru to develop”, the President said, adding that the money missing from this crime is needed for developing projects for the country.
The president also assured that the VIII Summit of the Americas, to be held this Friday and Saturday in Lima, will be the opportunity of Peru to put itself in the eyes of the "three Americas", according to La Vanguardia.
