city of Arequipa in PeruTourism helped create 300,000 formal jobs in Peru in the last five-year period, thus contributing to reducing poverty, Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister Magali Silva affirmed.

 
“It has meant a greater participation of small enterprises and women in the tourism industry,” she told Andina news agency.

 

In this sense, “tourism has been important in poverty reduction.”

 

“Tourism is growing constantly, and receptive tourism, which measures the arrival of foreign tourists in Peru, will have registered an accumulated growth of 40% over the quinquennium,” she said.

 

It must be noted receptive tourism expanded by 7.5% (3.5 million foreign tourists) and led to revenue worth US$3.32 billion in 2015.

 

Minister Silva stressed the relevance of new business initiatives boosted by the portfolio to reduce poverty.

 

“We have worked on 33 new business initiatives, which joined already existing ones; as legacy, 75 new initiatives will be left” by the time the current administration leaves office.
