QATAR KEEN ON INVESTING IN PERU’S KEY PROJECTS

DOHA, Feb. 22 — A delegation of leading Qatari entrepreneurs have asserted interest in exploring business opportunities in Peru after attending President Humala’s address to members of a Business Roundtable aimed at showcasing the country’s growth momentum.

The business leaders forum took place in Doha, Qatar, where the Peruvian leader paid his first official state visit as part of an Middle East tour which includes Israel and Palestine.

The Peruvian key sectors which lured the interest of the representatives of the leading firms based in the Arab state were infrastructure, mining, oil, agriculture, and air operations.

During his remarks, Humala highlighted the main strengths achieved by Peru in the priority policy of social inclusion and sustained economic growth which has awarded the country investment grades from several major credit-rating agencies.

“These government policies have allowed the country to move up its long-awaited investment grade ladder by boosting economic growth and keep debt in check,” the Peruvian leader said.

The meeting was attended by executives of companies including Qatar Mining, Food Qatar, Qatar Airways, Hassad Food, Qatar Investment Authorities, and Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company.

Before the business meeting, Peru and Qatar signed three cooperation agreements to strengthen bilateral relations.
