Spanish Firms Showcase “Smart Cities” Innovations in Peru

LIMA – Eight companies from Spain presented their technological innovations at the “Smart Cities: A Cultural and Technological Challenge for Peru” forum, organized by Ametic, an association of Spanish tech firms, in Lima with support from Spain’s ICEX export and investment agency.

The presentation was made by representatives of Spanish companies GVAM, Ilunion, Magic Box, Rooter, Satec, Seres, TICsmart and Vocalia Technologies.

Officials from the cities of Lima and San Isidro, the regional government of Tacna, a province on the border with Chile, and other Peruvian public institutions attended the forum.

Ametic officials discussed the Smart Cities Plan unveiled last March by the Industry, Energy and Tourism Ministry.

Ametic’s Juan Gascon told EFE that the development of smart cities “represents a paradigm shift that could create much employment” in a country like Peru.

“It is a really interesting country where we can share experiences on the Spanish model of smart cities that we have developed in recent years,” Gascon said.

Mobility, pollution, energy efficiency, tourism and agriculture are the major concerns among Peru’s local governments in developing the smart cities concept, Gascon said.

Companies promoted by Ametic can implement systems in Peru, such as electronic billing, virtual assistants with voice recognition and the development of social inclusion projects, Gascon said.

Luis Marti, trade and economic attache at the Spanish Embassy in Lima, said during the forum’s opening session that the ICEX expected the implementation of smart cities in Peru “will be done hand in hand with Spanish companies since their initiatives, in many cases, are pioneers in the world.”
