About the event
In order to discuss the current situation of the vicuña in Peru, representatives of the country’s vicuña-producing regions arrived in Huancavelica this month, as the region hosted the II National Vicuña Forum 2021, which seeks to promote this important productive sector for the benefit of the high Andean population.
To this end, the Regional Government of Huancavelica, through the Regional Directorate of South American Camelids (DIRCAMS), was responsible for developing the preparations that allowed the successful development of the event that brought together the vicuña producing regions of the country. The head of DIRCAMS, Mr. Fredy Canales Paco, announced that the national forum addressed proposals and alternatives to promote this important productive sector.
