During the opening of the Peru CEO Impact Summit, the Peruvian Prime Minister announced that the Executive has approved the incorporation of the BIM methodology used by Lima 2019 to the National Competitiveness Plan.

En la apertura del Perú CEO Impact Summit, el Premier anunció que el Ejecutivo aprobó la incorporación de la metodología BIM, que empleó Lima 2019, al Plan Nacional de Competitividad.

The President of the Lima 2019 Organizing Committee (COPAL), Carlos Neuhaus, stated that the Pan American and Parapan American Games constitute an investment paradigm which should be replicated by the Government in order to undertake successful public projects and raise Peru’s profile in the context of sustainable economic development.

“With an economic impact amounting to 5200 million soles, Lima 2019 is a model for project execution based on transparency and clear goals. It will help us continue moving toward development,” Neuhaus highlighted during the opening of the Peru CEO Impact Summit.

The COPAL president also stressed that the key to Lima 2019 being regarded as the best Pan American and Parapan American Games in history lies in the co-operation between the Government and civil society.

“The Games were a unique time in the history of the country. We set out to make them a reality and we achieved a feat, with the participation of various public entities such as local governments, the Armed Forces and ministries, as well as the unconditional support of our citizens. This was evidenced in a survey by Ipsos Apoyo, which revealed that 94% of the population approved of them,” he stated, excitedly.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Salvador del Solar announced the recent Government decision to approve the incorporation of the BIM (Building Information Modeling) methodology to the National Competitiveness Plan. This methodology was used by Lima 2019 to great success.

“The National Competitiveness Plan was designed to turn this country into the place we want to leave to our children. It must focus on solving the problems caused by the infrastructure gap. And Lima 2019 serves as a model of public investment for a wide array of infrastructure works such as schools, hospitals and others,” the Prime Minister concluded.

Finally, the summit participants warmly thanked Mr. Neuhaus for achieving the goals set, and stated unanimously that Lima 2019 is a model of transparent and efficient public management which has made it possible to rebuild institutionality and trust in government entities.

“I congratulate you and your team on the excellent Games organization. This is why I believe that it’s crucial to transfer the experience and knowledge gained by the officials who worked for Lima 2019 to various local and national government organizations, for the execution of forthcoming investment projects,” highlighted Michel Canta, Vice Minister of Economy and Finance.
