PROMPERU is promoting innovation as a fundamental tool to improve the internationalization of Peruvian companies based on an exportable offer with greater sophistication and added value. This strategic goal is aligned with one of the key objectives of the “Pacific Alliance”, an economic block in which Peru has been acting. The country is currently interested in rekindling its relationship with EFTA, regarding its strategy of joining the OECD. In this line, the establishment of an Embassy in Oslo was initiated since June 2017.
The delegation will be represented by the following companies: Inkaterra, Inca tops S.A., Itatec, Andes Accelerator, Background AS, Minera Poderosa og APESOFT (Peruvian Software Association) and will represent several important actors within the sectors Mining/Natural resources, Tourism, IT and Fintech. Does your company have interests in one of these sectors or want to participate at the event? Please contact External Affairs Director, Astri Platou.
