Friday marks the second of a two-day roadshow showcasing the potential of Peru’s emerging marketplace. The event hosted by inPeru, a public-private organization that is made up of large Andean businesses and promotes investment into the country, has aimed to secure future contracts and connections with U.S.-based business partners.
InPeru Chairman Francis Stenning told Peru’s state-owned Andina news agency that the event that began Thursday has showcased massive interest from foreign markets into Peru, where industries like mining, agriculture, and fishing can promise large return on investment.
“There are groups that have highlighted the advancements of Peru in distinct aspects that emphasize countries emerging from the pack, none moreso than Peru,” Stenning said.
The chairman said foreign businesspeople are eager to talk about infrastructure developments and general investment into the Andean marketplace.
“There is a genuine interest to participate in road construction and in the growth of the airport, as well as the construction of the gas pipeline in the country’s south,” Stenning told Andina.
The investment promotion tour in New York is being led by a delegation of two dozen figures that includes inPERU Chairman Stenning, as well as numerous private sector company heads.
Peru has one of the lowest debts in the region, according to a recent study
that put the national debt figure at just 24.8% of the GDP.
