Peru’s Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister, Martín Pérez, estimates that Peruvian investements in Chile could double, amounting US $5 billion.

“I have no doubt about it,” said the Minister.

He revealed that the Chilean authorities who he met agreed to allow the increase of Peruvian investments in that country, in order to create more jobs.

“Peruvian companies have experienced a significant capitalization, and I have no doubts that a great international expansion is about to start: we are going to see much more Peruvian investment abroad during the next decade,” he said.
