ABOUT PERU AS A TRADING PARTNER:
Peru’s GDP expanded by 8.8% in the first quarter of this year, compared with the same period last year. In 2010 growth was 7.8% due to expanded exports, giving it a country comparison to the world in real growth rate of l3 . With the recent election of President Humala, the U.S. Peru Trade Promotion Agreement signed in 2009, and strong exports/imports between our countries, this is the lunch to attend to learn about future relations between Peru’s dynamic economy and U.S. business prospects.
