Beijing will celebrate Peru Day on September 1 at the International Horticultural Exhibition that will be taking place in this Chinese city.
“Native Peruvian products will be promoted throughout the day, such as its indigenous potatoes, quinoa and cocoa”, Global Times informed. “Peru’s most recently-created brand will also be presented at the event: ‘Coffees from Peru’ Exhibitions, tasting sessions and Peruvian culture performances will be held on the sidelines of the event”, they continued.
Currently, according to data from Global Times, Peru’s agricultural exports to Asia amount to $617 US million dollars, which equals 22% growth compared to the previous year.
“One of the most important destination markets for Peruvian fruit and vegetables was China. Grapes, avocados, cranberries and bananas topped the list of the most exported products to Asian markets in 2018”, the aforementioned website explained.
It was also known that Peru was the country chosen to be the main partner country at the Asia Fruit Logistica Fair that will take place for the 12th time from September 4 to 6 at the AsiaWorld-Expo in Hong Kong.
