Peru was chosen as a “Partner Country” by the Asia Fruit Logistica fair, which celebrates its 12th edition between September 4 and 6 at the AsiaWorld-Expo Center in Hong Kong.
“Peru, which has supported the exhibition in all its editions, holds record participation this year, representing a total of 300 Peruvian businessmen through 60 companies and more than twenty associations in the sector”, Interempresas said on their website.
A Peruvian delegation will be distributed in a 240 square meter stand and will be coordinated between Promperú, the Peruvian-German Chamber of Commerce, the Association of Producer Guilds of Peru (AGAP) and the Commercial Office of Peru in Hong Kong.
“The importance of Asian markets for Peru is indisputable. In 2018, agricultural exports from Peru to Asia amounted to $617 million US dollars”, the aforementioned website said. They also informed that these exports have experienced a growth of 22% over the previous year.
In addition, as part of a celebration of Peru Day on September 1, the country is organizing special activities, such as a stand at the Beijing International Horticultural Exhibition where products from Peru will be promoted.
