The head of the political section of the EU delegation in Peru, Marianne Van Steen said she was confident that the new administration of President Ollanta Humala, would achieve the goal of growth with social inclusion and also achieve significant progress in the fight against poverty.
"We are confident that the new government is taking the right steps to achieve social inclusion growth," she said.
Van Steen said that to look for economic growth with social inclusion is something that the EU has always insisted on during any summit or high-level meeting, not only in Peru but also with other countries in Latin America.
"For the European Union the fact president Ollanta Humala put the issue of social inclusion on the table and as a priority of his government, is something to applaud," she said.
Van Steen also said that Peru has a very good reputation that will attract more investment from the European Union, and Humala’s government creates better prospects for the continent.
"We have no doubt that President Humala will continue to strengthen relations between the European Union and Peru, not only to boost the trade agreement we have but also on a political level," she said.
According to statements quoted in Andina, she argued that the European economy was still emerging from the international financial crisis, but many companies and business conglomerates in the EU would continue to analyze the increase in investments in Peru.
"In Europe there is major interest in investing in a country like Peru, where everything works well, and is one of the leading economies this year and next," she said after participating in the seminar "Doing Business with the European Union ", organized by the Exporters Association (Adex).
EU representative said she was confident that the new administration would achieve the goal of growth with social inclusion and also progress in the fight against poverty.
