Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra on Thursday monitored clean-up works of irrigation channels along Tumbes River, as part of preventive actions under the Reconstruction with Changes program.


The Head of State was joined by Agriculture Minister Gustavo Mostajo during the inspection.

As is known, northern Peru was hit by Coastal El Niño floods last year. Said weather event was characterized by heavy rains, landslides, and floods, which destroyed infrastructure and crops, leaving many citizens homeless.
