Brazilian businessmen look for onions, garlic and grapes from Peru

Brazilian entrepreneurs were interested in acquiring onion, garlic, grapes, grains and cement during the business round in Arequipa. The meeting was attended by micro-entrepreneurs from Tacna, Moquegua and Arequipa.

The expectation of short-term sales in the business roundtable is over 4 million dollars. Informed Ignacio Rivera, coordinator of the Business Promotion Center of the Southwest Macroregion of Promperú.

Ten Brazilian entrepreneurs from the cities of Acre, Rondonia, Manaus and Sao Paulo, interested in acquiring products, arrived at the business event. At least 30 micro-entrepreneurs from the south of the country participated in the activity.

Ignacio Rivera said that there were at least eight business meetings developed to date with businessmen from Brazil and Peru. They are destined for the south of the country's small businesses, due to the existence of the Interoceanic highway that communicates both countries by land. However, the route is not used for trade, except for a small percentage.

The official said that the expectations of buying Peruvian products are increasingly greater on the part of the Brazilian market. However, there are still some logistical restrictions and administrative procedures to speed up some aspects, which they are working on, he said.

Exports to Brazil
The Arequipa region last year exported 100 million dollars to Brazil. They were non-traditional products such as garlic, onions and grapes, which are in great demand among that country's population.

The Vice Minister of Foreign Trade, Edgar Vásquez, participated in the business roundtable and the Regional Export Plan's launch. This is part of the commitments established in the National Strategic Exporter Plan (PENX) 2025 of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur).

Finally, the regional document proposes concrete solutions to address the export competitiveness gaps. These were identified in a participatory manner by the main actors in the region.
