The country of peace 2018
The sovereign State of Guatemala has stood out for its efforts to achieve citizen peace and guarantee the protection of human rights. A central part of this was embodied in the Peace Accords (1991-1996) to reach peaceful solutions to the main problems generated by the internal armed conflict.
The Government has manifested its commitment in the strengthening of democratic institutions, the promotion of dialogue and consultation with all political forces, citizen movements and organized civil society in the country.
It has also expressed its decision to address the needs, interests and problems to achieve comprehensive health, quality education, food security, economic development, environmental sustainability and security in its different dimensions, within a framework of institutional capacities strengthened through probity, transparency, the spirit of service and an attitude of commitment (General Government Policy 2016-2020).
It should be noted that Guatemala recognizes diversity as a source of wealth for the construction of relations of intercultural coexistence and the establishment of a culture of peace.
This climate of State is considered ideal for the completion of the fourth edition of the Peace Integration Summit: CUMIPAZ 2018 - Guatemala.
