The proposal was made at a meeting with Regional Director of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Dircetur) Julio Palacios, officials of Cajamarca’s Regional Government and the Chamber of Commerce.
“The border integration process has worked successfully in the last years, but it is necessary to create a cross-border macroregion on tourism in order to strengthen this process, and Cajamarca is an important region for us,” Altamirano said.
Such proposal is feasible, he said, because tourism is a uniting and strengthening sector, and it would be used to reinforce tourism training processes and promotion of northern Peru and Southern Ecuador, ie. as an only one tourist destination.
In that sense, he summoned the regional directors of Peru to meet with their Ecuadorian counterparts on September 3 at the city of Loja to design a project profile and submit it to the presidents of both countries.
