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, will also visit Frankfurt and London.
With the main objective being to promote foreign investment into the growing number of development opportunities in Peru, key delegation members will speak on 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.
The minister of Economy and Finance, Luis Miguel Castilla, highlighted that the tour of InPeru, a non-profit Peruvian association, 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 will aim to increase awareness of the vast potential for profit and development within the Peruvian economy; which recorded strong growth of 6 per cent in 2012.
