In the arrangement reached in the presence of Seoul's ambassador to Peru Park Hee-kwon, Peru's interior minister and chief of police call on local law enforcement authorities to offer speedy assistance to KOICA workers in case of emergency situations, Yonhap news agency reported.
An emergency contact network will be set up so police can take all necessary actions to ensure the safety of South Korean workers.
KOICA, created in the early 1990s by the South Korea's foreign ministry, aims to improve the effectiveness of Seoul's foreign assistance to developing countries by sending specialists to help with various aid programs.
The state-run agency has been sending workers to Peru since 1996 with 89 members currently in the country engaged in education, healthcare, and computer training.
"The latest pact is expected to greatly improve the level of safety for KOICA workers and other Korean nationals in the country," Park said. He added enhancing safety can make it easier for South Korean companies to operate in Peru.
