The President of the Republic Pedro Castillo participated at a cultural event held in the Amazonian city of Moyobamba in San Martin region —within the framework of the Global Meeting for Climate, the Amazon, and Tropical Forests.

The meeting seeks to exchange experiences to preserve and promote the development of tropical forests.

"It is impossible to move countries forward if we do not link these experiences with the community, with local and regional governments, and with the central government," the Head of State said at the meeting that took place at Moyobamba Cultural Center on Wednesday night.

The event is organized by the Governors' Climate and Forests Task Force (GCF Task Force). Nearly 500 participants from Peru and various countries of the world discuss and exchange experiences on conservation and sustainable management in countries with tropical forests.

"Peru is diverse and has a wide variety of climates, but the most important aspect which is worth mentioning is its human resources. The Government is willing to help their communities move forward," Mr. Castillo remarked.

Authorities from Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, the United States, Indonesia, Mexico, and Peru are joining this exchange.

The GCF Task Force is an organization that works to protect the world's tropical forests, the climate, and the Amazonia. It is made up of 39 subnational governments from 10 countries.

Moreover, the organization is chaired by the Governor of Yucatan (Mexico) and the Governor of San Martin (Peru) Pedro Bogarin Vargas.

The meeting kicked off on October 10 and will come to an end on October 13 with the signing of the San Martin Declaration, in which global actions will be proposed to reduce deforestation and achieve a climate agenda for the world's tropical forests.
