Peru President: Our administration travels to regions


13:45 | Tingo Maria (Huanuco region), May. 17.

We are an administration that leaves its headquarters and travels to regions, with the purpose of engaging in dialogue with their authorities and citizens, President Martin Vizcarra pointed out.

The Head of State arrived in Huanuco region on Thursday to carry out a series of activities, including a new edition of the Muni-Executive Power meeting.

Muni-Executive Power meetings denote cooperation platforms that promote, develop, and strengthen the joint efforts between municipalities and the Executive Branch.

In this sense, President Vizcarra stressed the relevance of joint efforts undertaken by central and regional governments.

Joined by Health Minister Silvia Pessah, the Peruvian leader oversaw construction works of a new hospital in Tingo Maria.

According to the President, the construction of a hospital cannot be considered complete, if it lacks drinking water and sanitation services.

"That will be our priority," the statesman expressed in this sense.

"There are a lot of needs, but we cannot meet all of them at once. Yet, we guarantee a responsible work with priorities, in favor of health, education, and basic sanitation," he concluded.
