An official economic and trade delegation from Peru will visit the kingdom of Bahrain to meet with businessmen in order to promote the ASPA CEO Summit 2011, to be held in Lima, reported Bahrain News Agency.

The meeting will take place in Beit Al Tejjar, the headquarters of the Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BBCI) in Manama, Bahrain’s capital city.

Peru’s delegation will also hold talks with BCCI officials, and representatives of the trade and industrial sectors to boost bilateral trade between the private sector of both countries.

BCCI Chief Executive Officer Ibrahim Ahmed Al Lanjawi called economic and trade entrepreneurs to attend the meetings with the visiting delegation that will be held Wednesday morning.

“The visit is an opportunity to highlight the two countries’ investment and economic potentials and open up new cooperation horizons,” he said.

The kingdom of Bahrain is an island country composed of 33 islands situated in the Persian Gulf and ruled by the Al Khalifa royal family.

The planned Qatar Bahrain Causeway will link Bahrain and Qatar –where Peru has recently opened an embassy– as the longest fixed link in the world.

Bahrain is also known for its oil and pearls exports. The country is home of many popular structures such as the Bahrain World Trade Center and the Bahrain Financial Harbour, as well as home of many skyscrapers, including the proposed 1,022 meters high supertall Murjan Tower.

The Bahrain International Circuit is also located here, and is the place where the popular Bahrain F1 Grand Prix takes place.

Peru will host the Third Summit of South American-Arab Countries (ASPA), that will take place in Lima from February 11 to the 16.
