Peru for strengthening trade ties with India

Special Correspondent

It opens consulate in Bangalore

Bangalore: Peru has chalked out various plans to expand its business and trade volume with India, particularly Karnataka, in the coming days.

To boost ties with Karnataka, Peru opened its consulate in Bangalore, headed by Vikram Vishwanath.

Minerals

Addressing presspersons here on Sunday, Javier Paulinich, Ambassador of Peru to India, said: “Our primary objective is to strengthen ties between India and Peru in sectors such as mining, minerals, tourism and agro-business. So far, Peru has exploited only 20 per cent of its minerals. It has an abundance of minerals such as silver, gold, copper and zinc.”

Trade volume

The trade volume between the two countries has been estimated at $800 million in 2010-11 and several Indian companies have set up mining operations in Peru. Peruvian officials would hold talks with industry, forest, education and other departments of Karnataka and make every attempt to boost trade between the two, Mr. Paulinich said.

An international fair on food, beverages, machinery, service suppliers and other areas of agro-business would be held from September 28 to 30 at Lima in Peru.

Tourism

Mr. Vishwanath and Minister Counsellor, Embassy Peru, Paul Ducolos, also spoke and said about 5,000 tourists from India visit Peru every year. However, the number of Peruvian tourists to India was less, they said.
