The Commanders Respond: Peruvian Navy

Our planning effort covers a 20-year term, broken into 5- and 10-year assessments. That sets out the respective strategic goals that are part of the institutional guidelines for decision-making and the fulfillment of mission and vision. By making the navy known as an efficient, agile, transparent, and dynamic organization that follows comprehensive fundamental principles, our planning also capitalizes on and optimizes state resources, achieving tangible results for government agencies and the population as a whole.

The goals, therefore, seek to ensure a proper capacity for the naval defense using forces poised to project power to successfully face the challenges in its areas of responsibility, be they by the sea, rivers, or lakes.

The operational elements of our navy and its supporting organization have identified the necessary strategic capacity and structure for efficient, suitable, and deterrent forces capable of operating under any conditions—from the boundlessness of the oceans, to the heights of the Andes lake settings, to the impregnable Amazon fluvial region.

It is within such a framework that we work for sovereignty, territorial-integrity surveillance, aquatic control, the exercise of the maritime authority, support of foreign policy, comprehensive defense research and development, and above all, the preservation of the values and the well-being of our main resource: the Peruvian sailor.

Our navy is strongly committed to working toward the common goal of cooperative security to face today’s world threats and at the same time strengthening ongoing internal processes aimed at achieving short-, mid-, and long-term goals through creative solutions.
