Peru Service Summit 2015 is the gateway to the international market for many Peruvian enterprises, the Service Export Department Coordinator at PromPeru (Peru’s Export and Tourism Promotion Board) David Edery affirmed today.
"This 5th edition [is held while] the country displays a positive evolution, since this summit is the gateway to the international market for many enterprises, among them, many small and medium-sized enterprises," he told Andina news online channel.
On this occasion, demand comes from 19 enterprises, which are not only based in Latin America, but also in Asia, the United States and Canada.
"This presence intends to show how Peru Service Summit gets empowered […]. [Representatives from] countries, such as Japan or South Korea are here to acquire videogames, digital marketing and software," he told.
When the service exports program at PromPeru was launched, it used to be composed of three main sections. Nonetheless, given the high international demand, it has expanded to other seven.
According to Edery, specialized software exports are worth US$30 million. Those are addressed to banking, tourism and video-gaming sectors.
Additionally, he said Peru Service Summit does not only constitute a platform for establishing contacts through a business roundtable, but also" a platform to capture knowledge" thanks to the success stories to be told while the summit is underway.
“We aim at internationalizing the service companies and that these will settle down in international markets," he told.
The event, which opened on Wednesday, will run thru July 10.
