Branch Overview on Sustainable Tourism in Peru.
 
Welcome.
The Andes, which originate in Patagonia and extend over seventhousand kilometers in South America, have shaped a varietyo landscapes, peoples and cultures. Amidst the Andes, Peru is the repository o immeasurablewealth, both tangible and intangible. Icons and “Unique SellingPositions” are Machu Picchu and the mystical city o Cusco,the birthplace o the Inca Empire. But the country oers a lot moreto visitors. Our vision is to expand tourism destinations in Perubeyond Machu Picchu to give greater value to the country‘s richcultural heritage, its abundant biodiversity and world-classgastronomy.The State Secretary or Economic Aairs SECO has been sup-porting sustainable tourism in Peru since 2003, together with twostrategic Swiss partners. In cooperation with Swisscontact,SECO promotes the concept o Destination Management Organi-sations (DMOs), which represents a dynamic platorm wherepublic and private actors jointly position their regional tourist des-tinations in the international market. This project has led tothe establishment o six DMOs in Southern Peru as well as onecovering the north o the country.SECO is also nancing the Swiss Import Promotion ProgrammeSIPPO which assists leading SMEs with a clear ocus on qualityand sustainability in their eorts to market their touristic oersinternationally. The Branch Overview on Sustainable Tourism inPeru is a useul milestone in these eorts, providing Swiss tourismbusiness partners and consumers with suitable products in Peru.I wish all readers o the Branch Overview a successul reading andcan promise them that SECO will continue to work towards thegrowth o tourism in Peru or the benet o both the Peruvian andthe Swiss tourism sectors.Christian RobinHead o Economic Development Cooperation in PeruState Secretary or Economic Aairs SECO

To this end, our principleso involvement are: strengthening private businesses, genera-ting support networks with local partners, encouraging opportuni-ties or men and women, and advocating or the protectiono the environment. Applying the principle o “helping others to help themselves”,Swisscontact advocates sustainable development throughout theentire scope o the organization: management o small andmid-sized businesses, nancial services, environment, and proes-sional training.Due to the act that tourism has been growing in Peru during thelast 10 years and that it is a highly decentralized and labor-intensive activity which generates many business opportunities,Swisscontact has increased the specialization o its interven-tions to promote sustainable tourism. One approach has been thedevelopment o a model to promote Destination ManagementOrganizations (DMO), as public-private institutions that oster thedevelopment o tourist destinations in an inclusive and sustai-nable way with a clear market orientation. Another Swisscontactapproach is to develop products to diversiy tourist destina-tions and oster community-based tourism.Swisscontact’s support has led to the creation o seven DMOs,six o them in southern Peru, namely in Arequipa, Apurimac,Cusco, Puno, Moquegua and Tacna, and a macro-DMO in thenorthern Amazon region.SwisscontactJr. Juan Dellepiani 585Lima 27, PeruPhone +51 1 264 58 64Fax +51 1 264 32 12sc-peru@swisscontact.org.pewww.swisscontact.org.peThe Peruvian Adventure Travel and Ecotourism Association(APTAE) is a non-prot organization created in 1983 to strengthenadventure travel and ecotourism in Peru, and comment industryregulations and promotional eorts. Its main objective is to promote responsible and sustainableadventure travel and ecotourism.
