President Humala's Canada visit to rise Peru's garment trade

Posted by Juan Gavasa on April 11, 2014

The ongoing President Humala’s official trip to Canada is set to improve trade of Peruvian textiles to the North American nation, the Canada-Peru Chamber of Commerce said Thursday.

The entity’s head, Irene Fernandini, noted the Canadian business sector is eager to allocate investment for importing cotton from the Andean nation, which is a raw material required for making garment.

“There is a significant interest to carry out businesses in Peru as its cotton supply is of high-quality but little known though. Canadians entrepreneurs see a great opportunity and their interest in purchasing is pretty high,” Fernandini said.

Moreover, she pointed out that, in particular, Montreal's business sector is likely to implement actions to kick off operations in the South American nation. “Education is also a sector showing potential to boost the two countries’ bilateral ties. Canada stands out by its cooperation to enhance competitiveness and there are many Peruvian students who can be expected to benefit from it,” the entrepreneur added.

President Humala is paying an official visit to Canada Wednesday through Friday where he is scheduled to meet several top officials and to attend the Canadian Council of the Americas (CCA)'s award ceremony for the 2013 Statesman of the Year.
