The President of the Republic Pedro Castillo on Thursday called on businesspeople from Colombia, the rest of Latin America, and the world to invest in Peru without any fear.

At the beginning of the 6th Binational Cabinet, the Head of State emphasized that Peru and Colombia are brother countries. Thus, it is appropriate to reaffirm said friendship and commitment for the sake their peoples —especially those residing in the border area.

The top official deemed as important nurturing the bilateral agenda both on paper and in action and to have —for example— healthy borders —without fear, discrimination, pollution, or corruption.

"From the Binational Cabinet, I call on businesspeople from Colombia, (the rest of) Latin America, and the world to go to Peru to invest without any fear," he emphasized. 

In this sense, he said the vaccination of the school population is on the right path to guarantee a return to face-to-face classes.

"As president and schoolteacher, I get worried to see students distant from classrooms and teachers. If we do not educate youth, we will achieve little or nothing," he expressed.

Moreover, the Head of State argued that one of his administration's fights is against corruption, since this scourge distances the population from services and rights to water, health, and education.

"We believe it is important for the peoples to trust their authorities," he emphasized, stressing the need for the Peruvian State to get closer to the population.

The top official also argued that it is a duty to defend the environment and sit down to talk without agendas, political ideologies or other elements that might lead to confrontation.
