Follow-up Mission for Growth to Peru

Following Vice-President Antonio Tajani's Mission for Growth to Peru on 23-24 January 2013, Director-General of Enterprise and Industry DG Daniel Calleja will lead a technical Follow-up Mission for Growth to Lima and Chiclayo on 2-5 December 2013.

The purpose of this visit is to

  • promote sustainable and inclusive growth in the EU and Peru
  • help our companies and in particular our SMEs to operate internationally by exploiting business opportunities in Peru
  • promote our industry in targeted sectors by participating in matchmaking events with local entrepreneurs and in major events that take place in Peru during the mission
  • strengthen our co-operation in strategic fields, implementing the letters of intent signed by Vice-President Tajani, notably in the areas of SME development, industrial cooperation, raw materials, sustainable construction and tourism

Business Delegation Focus and Selection Criteria

We particularly encourage the presence of companies operating in related sectors, such as:

  • Machine tools/industrial machinery
  • Key enabling technologies
  • Construction and engineering
  • Mining and raw materials
  • Consumer goods
  • Tourism

Companies interested in joining the mission are invited to register by clicking on the button at the bottom of the page and filling up the application.

Filling up the application does not entail any obligation to participate on the side of the company.

Only companies and associations of the European Union can express interest.

If there is a higher than expected level of interest for this particular Mission, the Commission will apply the following criteria in selecting companies from amongst the expressions of interest:

  • The overall geographical and industrial balance of the business delegation
  • The level of representation of the company – preference for General Managers

The Deadline for the expression of interest was extended: 30 September 2013

Companies that will be selected will receive an e-mail of confirmation from the functional mail box M4G of DG ENTR: Entr-Intl-Affairs-Missions-Growth@ec.europa.eu by 4 October 2013.

Practical Arrangements

Plane and accommodation expenditures will be borne by the companies themselves. Local transportation (by coach) will be offered by the Commission.

Visas will need to be applied for by participants themselves if needed.

Outline of the Programme

From 2nd to 6th December 2013, the Government of Peru will host the 15th session of the General Conference of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) in Lima.

The Mission will therefore start on 2nd December 2013 in Lima. Our intention is to meet with high level political representatives, key industry leaders and local entrepreneurs. We will also attend the UNIDO General Conference. We are exploring the possibility to organise a visit to Chiclayo. The mission will end on 5th December in Lima.
