Peru, one of the world’s fastest growing emerging economies, will next week embark on a major international road show with the goal of promoting greater inward investment from foreign markets.
The tour will see a 35 strong Peruvian delegation led by senior government ministers and business executives from the worlds of politics, banking and commerce, visit the cities of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Frankfurt and London.
With the main objective being to promote foreign investment into the growing number of development opportunities in Peru, as well as those within its financial and capital markets, key delegation members will include minister of finance and economy, Luis Miguel Castilla, chairman of the Central Bank of Peru, Julio Velarde, Jose Antonio Blanco executive chairman of Inperu and chief executive of Citibank Peru, and Christian Laub, vice chairman of InPeru; all of whom will all be giving key speeches at each of the conferences.
These will focus on such relevant topics as the encouraging economic outlook of Peru, the consequent investment opportunities in energy, infrastructure, banking and commodities, national monetary policy, trade agreements and the accommodating framework for international investors.
In addition, InPeru will also be represented by a further 30 key figures from the largest and most forefront companies in Peru - including the Lima Stock Exchange, the Peruvian Corporate Affairs of Rio Alto, Procapitales and Buenaventura.
Chief executives and representatives from these, among others, will be available for private meetings during the seminars.
Castilla highlighted that Inperu’s tour in Dubai, Frankfurt and London will allow Peru to position itself as an important country for investment in Latin America.
“Peru has the highest growth rate of the region due to its dynamic private investment, as well as strong public finances and one of the lowest inflation rates.
“The country counts with firm economic foundations that will allow Peru to keep growing steadily during the next years,” he said.
In collaboration with Promperu and the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, InPeru (a semi private organisation and vital communication channel for investment into the country), will aim to increase awareness of the vast potential for profit and development within the Peruvian economy; which recorded strong growth of six per cent in 2012.
The road show begins on May 26th in Abu Dhabi, visiting Dubai on the 27th, Frankfurt on the 29th and will see the culmination of the promotion effort in London on the 30th.
