The United States grants an additional $92.5 million dollars to Peru for cooperation projects
The Governments of Peru and the United States, within the framework of Donation Agreement 527-0427, agreed to increase $92.5 million dollars in support from the United States to Peru for the period 2023-2024, adding to date a total of $202.9 million dollars, under the aforementioned agreement.
The objective is to continue progressing on priority issues on the bilateral agenda, such as social and economic development, sustainable management of natural resources, the fight against environmental crimes, corruption and illicit drug trafficking, and the socioeconomic integration of the migrant and refugee population.
Thanks to the cooperation provided by the government of the United States, through USAID, between the years 2018-2022 we contributed to improving the living conditions of more than 87,000 families in rural areas, registering an increase of 97.5% in their income. This achievement has been obtained thanks to the strengthening and improvement of the quality of coffee and cacao cultivation. Peru stands out as the first producer of organic coffee and second producer of organic cacao worldwide. Likewise, it has facilitated Internet access in rural areas, benefiting 117 communities that have managed to connect to domestic and even international markets.
Regarding the socioeconomic integration of the migrant population in Peru, during 2022 USAID provided support to 8,981 people to improve their employability and their abilities to start a new company or improve an existing one.
The international cooperation relationship between Peru and the United States of America is framed in the General Agreement on Technical Cooperation of 1951. This collaboration is solid and long-standing. They are friendly and partner countries, and this cooperation agreement is proof of this relationship.
