Peru & Brazil’s strong link


An 800-foot bridge has been recently inaugurated by President Alejandro Toledo and Brazilian President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva. This bridge connects the towns of Assis(Brazil) and Inapari(Peru), bringing great benefits to the populations by providing jobs, trade and investments. Peru will be exporting carrots, asparagus, garlic, tomatoes, cement and other goods to Brazil. On the other hand, Peru will be importing the fruit it lacks from Brazil. This bridge will assist Brazil by facilitating its exports abroad through Peru’s ports.
