The Embassy of Peru in the USA is in charge of executing the foreign policy goals of the Peruvian Government vis-à-vis United States authorities.
The main political issues of mutual interest are the fight against drug trafficking, terrorism and corruption, as well as the protection and promotion of democracy and human rights.
The Embassy of Peru also follows judicial, immigration and defense-related matters as well as social issues such as health, education, gender themes and other political and social areas in which Peru and the United States share a common interest.
The Embassy of Peru promotes the most significant values and expressions of Peruvian culture, whose diversity has a very long history. Culture is a factor of comprehensive development that has a multiplying effect on all aspects of the country’s foreign policy, including trade, investment, international cooperation and the reduction of poverty. It also allows the Embassy to be in close contact with the Peruvian community living in the United States.
In addition, our Public Diplomacy Department supports and coordinates cultural activities from Peruvian artists who come to Washington, D.C., for presentations and exhibitions in all artistic fields. It organizes cultural and artistic performances at the Embassy’s Art Gallery. It also assists and provides American citizens with information about Peru’s culture.
