LIMA, Peru, October 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
On Friday 29th September, Proinversión, the Peruvian Investment Authority, concluded a highly successful Asia investment roadshow in Tokyo, Japan, holding a conference for over 80 attendees at the headquarters of the the prestigious Japanese Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, who supported the event along with the Embassy of Peru in Japan. This was followed by a series of bilateral meetings with Japanese companies and potential investors.
The delegation was headed by Mr. Alberto Ñecco, the Director of Special Projects at Proinversión, and earlier in the week had held similarly important actions in Beijing, China and Seoul, South Korea. Among the Japanese guests were representatives from Hitachi, Mitsui, Mitsubishi and many other industry leaders, while guests in China included representatives from Volant Industry, Pinggao Group and SEPCO, and in South Korea from Yooshin, Daewoo and Hyundai.
The Tokyo event was inaugurated with an introduction by Peruvian Ambassador, His Excellency Mr. Harold Forsyth, who highlighted the more than 140 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries and the fact that Japan is Peru's fifth largest trade partner. He noted the favorable investment conditions for foreign capital such as the equal conditions for foreign and domestic investors and the solid legal framework to protect assets.
For his part, Mr. Cesar Martin Peñaranda, Director for Investor Services, presented the Agency's portfolio of infrastructure projects worth over US$ 17bn, in sectors such as energy, mining, gas, transport, water and sanitation and telecommunications. He also explained the way in which PPPs and the tender process works in Peru.
Mr. Ñecco concluded: "Tokyo marks the end of a highly productive and successful roadshow during which we have received a great amount of interest from Asian conglomerates and private investors who are particularly attracted by Peru's stability and transparency. The size of our infrastructure gap provides many opportunities and many firms have expressed their interest in learning how to best enter the market. Our roadshow has been vital to developing relations with potential partners from the region who will be participating in tenders to enter PPPs in the near future".
Proinversión is open to any questions or enquiries by Japanese investors, potential investors or media.
