Peru’s minister of foreign trade and tourism led the groundbreaking ceremony at the site of the country’s Expo 2020 pavilion.
Edgar Vasquez officially marked the beginning of construction of the ‘Timeless, Always Peru’ pavilion in the Mobility District.
"Expo 2020 Dubai is a great opportunity to showcase to the world what we are, whom we are and what we are made of,” said Vasquez.
“From our marvelous attractions to our award-winning gastronomy; our cultural and natural diversity to our ancestral knowledge and intangible heritage.
“It is a great opportunity to showcase our talent, hospitality, creativity, uniqueness, diversity, as well as the tremendous array of opportunities and vast possibilities to be fostered commercially.”
Peru's exports to the UAE totals $610million for the year to date, an increase of 344% compared to the same period of 2018.
