Peru is strengthening its position in the world by hosting major international events. Following in the footsteps of Brazil and Colombia, Peru appears to be aligning itself as the next South American country ready to support an evolution of its tourism and hospitality industries.
On top of Peru’s already solidified economy, the Peruvian government is boosting incentives to attract investment in infrastructure. Meanwhile, Peru’s successful mining industry is providing a pipeline for higher incomes, leading to more domestic travelers.
“The government is working to promote tourism because we know it’s an activity that creates jobs enormously and also brings investment into the region,” said Claudia Cornejo Mohme, Peru's Deputy Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism.
