Peru's ambassador to the United States, Carlos Pareja, offered a working breakfast to a select group of senior executives who traveled to Lima to participate in the recent APEC CEO Summit.

The event was hosted by the Americas Society / Council of Americas (AS / COA), based in Washington, DC.

Representatives of the companies Microsoft Corporation; Albright Stonebridge Group; Freeport McMoran; Merck & Co.; Rio Tinto; Apple; UPS; Hills & International Consultants Company; and Sempra Energy; held a dialogue on the most significant outcomes of the APEC Summit and the direction of trade and investment in the Asia Pacific region.

Ambassador Pareja emphasized the special post-electoral situation in the United States where the APEC Summit was held and emphasized the firm message in favor of an open economic environment that was transmitted by the President of Peru, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski.

"The Peruvian government guarantees the continuity of the excellent climate for investment and business offered by our country, and the impetus for second-generation structural reforms in investment, as well as more productivity and formalization of the economy," said the Peruvian diplomat.

The participants expressed that the climate for the business that reigns in Peru is quite propitious, especially if it is considered the economic situation of the rest of the region. They also valued President Kuczynski's political message in favor of free trade and the efforts his government has been making to consolidate Peru as a modern nation with the standards and practices of the most developed economies.

"The meeting has served to build bridges with the US business sector, and form a coalition to attract investments to our country", Pareja concluded.
