EU Supports Peru with $43 Million to Combat Drug Smuggling

BRUSSELS European Commissioner for Development Andris Piebalgs on Monday begins a visit to Peru, where he will announce a new aid package worth $43 million to combat drug trafficking.

During his stay, Piebalgs will hold talks with Peruvian officials on joint cooperation and the EUs contribution to development in Peru between 2014 and 2017, which stands at $89 million.

The European commissioner will sign a first installment of the anti-drug aid, for a value of $10.8 million.

The Commission underlined that the program aims at decreasing the production, smuggling and illegal use of drugs in Peru, in addition to stimulating alternative development in legal economic fields.

The aid is expected to help decrease the amount of cocaine that is smuggled to the EU zone.

After his visit to Peru, Piebalgs will head to Ecuador on Wednesday for a two-day visit.
