Mincetur: measures are being prepared to improve security in foreign trade

Juan Carlos Mathews, the head of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur), has announced that the government is implementing a series of measures to safeguard international trade in Peru. In collaboration with other state entities, efforts are being made to improve the foreign trade logistics chain in the country, with the aim of mitigating risks such as drug trafficking and insecurity that could affect the country's and companies' reputation.

Given previous cases of theft and contamination of goods, government authorities and the private sector have been convened to expedite the adoption of measures against these illicit activities. In a recent high-level meeting, Mincetur announced the first actions to be taken to ensure the security of exports and imports.

These measures include the implementation of scanners at the APM Terminals port terminal and at the Santa Rosa Border Assistance Center (Tacna) to enhance the detection of possible cargo contamination cases. Additionally, a Callao Port Protection Committee will be established to constantly evaluate the security of port terminals. On the other hand, the General Directorate of Captaincies and Coastguards (Dicapi) will modernize the maritime traffic service of the Callao port with the VTS system, aiming to improve security in the bay.

These actions add to the intelligence strategy and measures implemented by the Ministry of the Interior to address security issues in the logistics chain. The high-level meeting was attended by various institutions, both governmental and private, committed to this cause.

From July 2022 to January 2023, more than 10 working meetings were held with various state entities and business associations to identify challenges and develop concrete action proposals.
