The President of the Republic Pedro Castillo on Thursday said he is working alongside the Ministry of Education to complete the designation of some 80,000 teachers and thereby give job stability to the teaching sector.

"We cannot think of a good infrastructure, in better conditions for students, if teachers do not rely on training or job stability," Mr. Castillo indicated while 
inaugurating a refurbished school in Peru's northern Chiclayo province.

At the event, the Head of State said there are thousands of contracted teachers who are close to retiring in such a condition. Thus, it is appropriate to provide security to the teaching sector and that educators have a stable position.

The top official confirmed that, despite the fact that some might not like it, Peru has debts to collect and will do so to invest in education, agriculture, construction of first aid posts, and security, among others.

Likewise, the dignitary mentioned that there is an adverse political scenario characterized by people who do not want to understand that he had won in a free and open electoral process, adding that they seek to remove him from office.

According to Mr. Castillo, his administration has not come to power to steal from the National Treasury. "However, the judicial and criminal harassment continues (...) but that won't vanquish us," he expressed.

Furthermore, the President stressed that he has come to prove that a neglected and centralist country can be moved forward, bringing the State closer to the various corners of Peru and giving a voice to those who never had one.

Besides, he assured that the budget will be increased to improve educational infrastructure and put an end to scourges that affect families, such as crime and citizen insecurity.

In this sense, he reminded citizens that a return program is being implemented for those who had come from other countries and behaved badly while in Peru.
Mr. Castillo affirmed that major changes need compromise and reforms require unity.

"The transformation of the country needs (the support from) its offspring," said the dignitary, who saluted local and regional authorities who believe in the Peru Agenda.

Moreover, he reiterated his call on Congress to undertake all its efforts and consolidate open admission to universities for young people who finish high school.

"When we work as a team and strengthen the richness and love for the country, we will see that the generations to come will feel greater security and confidence," he emphasized.

In his speech, Mr. Castillo also said that his administration is determined to materialize the project of building a fertilizer plant in northern Piura region.


Later, President Castillo participated in a ceremony marking the handing over of three ambulances for Lambayeque region, which were donated by Japan.

Within this framework, the Head of State pointed out that his administration does not hesitate to make an equitable distribution of these tools, which are highly necessary for the care of the population.

The top official indicated that health must be a constitutional right and a priority, and highlighted the role of medical personnel in the fight against COVID-19.

Similarly, he called on Peruvians who have not yet received the third or fourth dose against COVID-19 to make the effort and get vaccinated as soon as possible.
