Oliva also referred to other initiatives developed in these executive tables, such as the transfer of revenue from IGV air tickets to regional governments to promote tourism, the need to improve operating conditions and access to Jorge Chavez airport and a proposal to improve efficiency in the territorial management of Machu Picchu in order to increase the number of tourists and boost the economy of the Cusco region.
