Agencia EFE Celebrates 50th Anniversary in Peru

LIMA – Agencia EFE, Spain’s international news agency, will celebrate its 50 anniversary in Peru with the inauguration of an exposition of photographs reviewing the main events and figures that have marked the last half century in the Andean nation.

The exhibit entitled “EFE in Peru: 50 years in 50 photos” will be inaugurated Tuesday by the agency’s president, Jose Antonio Vera, at the Cultural Center of Spain in Lima.

The exposition is being sponsored by Telefonica with the collaboration of the Spanish Embassy in Peru and Globalia.

In 1965, EFE opened its first international office in Buenos Aires, in keeping with its commitment to expand the scope of the agency, and a year later it began operations in Lima.

During this past half century, the professionals of EFE, the world’s largest Spanish-language news agency, have reported on events in Peru, with key moments in the history of the country having been immortalized in the images comprising this exhibition.

This review of the last 50 years includes sports, social and political events, as well as images of personalities from culture and politics.

EFE’s first bureau in Peru was established by Spanish journalist Carlos Jimenez on Ucayali Ave., in the capital’s historic downtown district.

Founded in 1939, EFE is the world’s fourth-largest news agency, with more than 3,000 professionals working in 120 countries, and generates nearly 3 million items per years of text, photo, audio, video and multimedia.

EFE received the 1995 Prince of Asturias Award for Communication and Humanities in recognition of the work of several generations of professionals and of the agency’s efforts to strengthen relations between Spain and Latin America.
