Post available in: English Español


Brazil and Peru have decided to come together in order to increase tourism in the area. The presidents of each country met and Dimla Rousseff (Brazilian President) and Ollanta Humala (Peruvian President) have come to an agreement to work together and create a working group in order to study the possibility of building a railway linking the neighbouring countries.

They both feel that an increase and an improvement in Internet connectivity will augment tourism as a result of greater accessibility.

Peru’s official Andina news agency quotes Rousseff as saying the nations’ ministers in charge of social programs will work more closely together.

A boom to commerce and tourism in 2011 came as a results to the interoceanic highway that connects Brazil’s Atlantic coast with Peru’s Pacific ports. After Dimla Rousseffs one-day visit to Lima earlier this month she praised the highway.

Another economic between the neighbouring countries is to eliminate roaming cellphone charges in the towns along the border so all calls are charged as local, this agreement was signed during Rousseff’s visit.

Rousseff says the two leaders also spoke about Peru benefiting from Brazilian technology transfer and health care advances.

These changes will also stimulate import/export activity further boosting both economies.
