In the last years, the Peruvian economic strength and its most friendly investment environment have attracted the attention of many more new investors, said AmCham Peru executive director Aldo Defilippi.
It was estimated that the United States invested 18 billion dollars in Peru last year; however, investment exceeded US$ 20 billion.
He explained that, at the end of 2009, Peru received an additional income of nearly 3 billion dollars from the United States.
"US investment has increased considerably and is one of the best investment choices in Peru; many of these capitals have not been formally estimated, since they are not required to be declared and some of them are made indirectly," he told Andina news agency.
BFA and AACCLA midyear meeting
Defilippi recalled that next week, Jun 21-24, Lima will host the XIV edition of the “Business Future of the Americas" (BFA) conference and the Association of American Chambers of Commerce in Latin America (AACCLA)'s midyear meeting.
This event will take place at the Swissôtel and gather renowned entrepreneurs, business delegations and high level officials of more than 23 countries of the occidental hemisphere, including the United States and Canada.
Among the guests are three presidents, five ministers of trade, world officials and experts in foreign trade and CEOs of important companies of the hemisphere, such as Caterpillar CEO, Jim Owens; LAN CEO, Enrique Cueto; and Microsoft Emerging Markets senior deputy president, Orlando Ayala; among others.
