Peru's chocolate, fish and alpaca textiles have potential to thrive in the Brazilian market due to their quality, the Department of Trade and Foreign Affairs at the Federation of Industries of the State of São Paulo (FIESP) reported.
According to its representative, Antonio Guimaraes Bessa, mining investment from Peru had an impressive entry in Brazil, but there is a bright future in the already mentioned sectors.
“I love Peruvian alpaca and chocolate. A few people in Brazil know about the quality of Peruvian chocolate; it is one of the best around the world, and only those who have been to Peru know about it. How about Peruvian fish? Why do we import it from China if we can bring it from Peru?,” he added.
According to Guimaraes Bessa, inPERU’s Brazil Road Show 2015 –which gathered businessmen and authorities– has met a major goal with regard to the integration of both nations.
“We need the same things: more infrastructure, public works and investment. An important step has been taken in that direction,” he told Andina news agency.
Peru-Brazil relations have always been healthy and strong, he added, and this type of meeting enhances and improves them.
The Brazil Road Show 2015 is the eight of its kind organized by inPERU. Previous similar events took place in London (2012), Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore (2012), New York, Chicago and San Francisco (2013), and Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Frankfurt and London (2013).
Other road shows were held in Chile, Colombia and Mexico (2013), New York (2014) as well as Madrid, Zurich and London (2014).
