TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE- PE'RU
Peru may be taken aa an example of the kind of technical
assistance which the United States is giving in South America to improve
agriculture and health in the area. A joint United State1-Poruvian agri•
cultural program ha.s epu.,.red Peru to increase imports of United States
agriculturnl equipment, as a reeult ~£ demonatratione of machinery pool
operations. Services o! agricultural tpoclalist• have led to an increa se
in the use of United States insecticides and fungicidee; and an agricultural
extension service le providing farmers with guidance and advice toward
increasing nrable areal!! and food production. A joint health program
with the Peruvian Government hae helped rid the Chimbote of malaria
and enabled that area, through nece1eary health facf.litiee, to become
Peru's neweet industrial center.
