Peru President: Formality will lead to progress, development

01:00 | Lima, May. 6.

Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra on Friday affirmed formality is the path towards achieving progress and development in Peru.

According to the Head of State, the Inca country's enormous potential should be used to make progress and achieve development, thus defeating the forces which had gone otherwise.

"We all want progress and development, and in order to achieve them, there must be order (…)," he expressed. 

Remarks were made during the inauguration of a Business Development Center located in Gamarra commercial emporium belonging to Lima's La Victoria district. As is known, Gamarra is the capital city's largest textile outlet.

The top official indicated the center will enable the area's garment entrepreneurs to formalize and increase their businesses. 

In this sense, President Vizcarra stressed his commitment is to all the mayors who wish to improve their districts.

On the occasion, he was joined by Production Minister Rocio Barrios and La Victoria Mayor George Forsyth.

Mayor Forsyth —a former soccer player who took office last January— has gained plenty of popularity as he decided to start a crusade against informality and corruption in his district.
