“Li Bin, in charge of the Directorate of International Cooperation of the NDRC, said that Peru is the second largest Chinese investment destination in Latin America with an amount that reaches $18,400 million US dollars, invested mainly in the mining and energy sectors”, wrote the news agency.
Currently, there are more than 100 Chinese companies with branches in different parts of Peru, according to Bin, who in addition hopes to strengthen the relationship with Peru in the context of “Una Franja, Una Ruta”, an initiative promoted by President Xi Jinping to connect Asia with Europe, Africa, and Latin America.
