The conference aims to sensitize the operators of Peru’s National Strategic Planning System (Sinaplan) about the importance of CTI to regional and national development.
The event was opened by Ceplan President, Giovanni Pierano, who highlighted the work carried out with Concytec to advance innovation and development in decision-making that leads to closing the gaps and improving our reality.

“Benefiting from the technology of the Fourth Industrial Revolution will not allow more inequality to be recorded,” the official said.
Finally, the President of Concytec, Benjamín Marticorena, emphasized the importance of a National Science, Technology and Innovation Policy, which is updated within the framework of the National Strategic Development Plan (PEDN), a guiding tool in strategic planning, which will allow action at the national, sectoral and transversal level for all regions and localities.
