The President of the Republic Dina Boluarte on Monday indicated that her next trip to the People's Republic of China will serve to further strengthen relations with the Asian country and foster investment projects for the benefit of citizens.

Mrs. Boluarte participated in the inauguration of the National Superintendence of Tax Administration (Sunat) Taxpayer Services Center in Lima's eastern Ate district.

Mrs. Boluarte pointed out that China and Peru are united by friendship ties, as well as by economic and commercial ones. Thus, 
she thanked the Legislative Branch for authorizing her upcoming departure from the South American country to make said State visit.

"I thank Congress for authorizing this trip, which will serve to further strengthen relations with China and boost investment projects for the benefit of ordinary citizens, entrepreneurs, parents, youth, boys and girls, who are not only the present but also the future of our beloved country," she pointed out.

The Head of State reiterated her call for unity in order to remain "the force that the homeland needs so that development is within the reach of all Peruvians."

Decentralization of services

President Boluarte affirmed that the decentralization of Peruvian State services is a priority for her Government, since it allows her administration to reach out to more citizens.

She added that the Executive Branch is fulfilling this "with facts, not with false hopes."

In that sense, Mrs. Boluarte highlighted the inauguration of the new Sunat Taxpayer Center in Ate, since it will allow citizens of said jurisdiction to carry out procedures, such as obtaining their Single Taxpayer Registry (RUC) number, filing their monthly tax returns, formalizing their small- and medium-sized enterprises, among others, without having to leave their area of residence, thus saving time and money.

This new establishment aims to serve upwards of 800 taxpayers every day and conduct over 16,000 transactions per 

"This is how we speak in our Government, through works and deeds," she said.

Moreover, Mrs. Boluarte asked Sunat officials to continue promoting the facilitation and simplification of State-run services, with the aim of consolidating the tax base expansion, which will enable all citizens' needs to be met.
