Lima, Nov. 11. Peru's Culture Ministry hosted the "Experiences in social
language policies: Mexican and Paraguayan cases" roundtable, where both
countries' experiences in State-policy implementation regarding rights and
indigenous languages were shared.

The event was held on Tuesday at the Ministry headquarters headed by
Intercultural Citizenship Director-General Lucia Solis Alcedo.

Presentations were in charge of Mexico National Indigenous Languages
Institute Deputy Director-General Fabricio Gaxiola Moraila and Paraguay
Language Policies Secretary Ladislaa Alcaraz de Silvero.

Over the previous decade, Mexico has made progress in this field thanks to
efforts undertaken by the National Indigenous Languages Institute.

Paraguay has seen the most successful language promotion case by advancing
in Guarani positioning.

The event was aimed at providing a space for dialogue and language policies
deepening in order to pave the way for the creation of the National Policy
for Indigenous Languages, Oral Tradition, and Interculturality, Law
N°29735, which regulates use, preservation, development, recovery and
promotion of Peruvian original tongues.
