Entrevista con Dr. Eduardo Mindreau, Decano de la Facultad de Ciencias Empresariales de la Universidad del Pacífico

1.  Peter Tase: ¿Cual es su opinión sobre las relaciones bilaterales comerciales entre Perú y EE.UU.?

Eduardo Mindreau: La balanza comercial a fines del 2012 fue negativa para el Perú en alrededor de US$ 1,495.5 millones. En mi opinión, esto ocurrió en parte por medidas que el gobierno estadounidense sigue ejecutando para superar la crisis financiera, como la reducción de importaciones. Sobre esto, Jürgen Schuldt, reconocido economista de nuestra casa de estudios, plantea la posibilidad de que el Perú esté ayudando a mejorar la balanza comercial de Estados Unidos por pequeña que sea su contribución. Por lo tanto, podíamos afirmar que las relaciones bilaterales no son recíprocas del todo.

2.  PT: ¿Qué impacto ha tenido la industria del turismo en la economía peruana durante los últimos 3 años?

EM: Un impacto significativo. El turismo en el Perú viene aumentando por encima del resto de países de la región lo que ha generado una mejora de nuestra economía ya que aumentaron los puestos de trabajo y el comercio interno. Sin embargo, para poder hacer sostenible este crecimiento es recomendable mejorar ciertos aspectos evidentes como una mayor infraestructura, facilidades de sanidad, mayor protección de nuestros recursos naturales y mejorar seguridad ciudadana; así como el potenciamiento de otros atractivos turísticos del país con el fin de distribuir el crecimiento.

3.  PT: ¿Cómo se pueden resumir las relaciones comerciales entre Perú y Chile, y Perú y Colombia?

EM: Nuestras relaciones con Chile y Colombia siempre han estado guiadas por la búsqueda de una integración regional que permita una mayor circulación de bienes, servicios, capitales y personas. Creo que iniciativas como la eliminación del requisito de visas para los empresarios y la creación de una bolsa de valores conjunta entre Chile, Perú y Colombia (Mercado Integrado Latinoamericano –MILA) pueden dar fe de esa intención.
