In the past decade, we have successfully implemented macroeconomic and financial reforms, and reinstated political conditions for internal security, stability, and pacification. We have overcome a long border controversy, initiating with neighboring Ecuador a new era of peace and development.

To consolidate these endeavors, cooperation and a partnership with Korea will be an important factor. …
