Peru targets Indonesia via ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA Roadshow in Asia, the event that highlights the potential of trade in fresh fruit and vegetables in this country
The event, which will be attended by the Indonesian Ministry of Agriculture, will take place on 18 March in Pullman Jakarta Indonesia at 10.00 am.
For the second year running, Peru has resumed its role as Official Partner Country at the biggest fresh fruit and vegetable trade fair in Asia, ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA. The next edition will be held in Singapore on 16-18 September. A series of roadshow promotional activities have been scheduled in five cities in Asia. The events, which focus on fruit and vegetable exporters and traders in the leading Southeast Asian markets, present the perfect platform to showcase the importance and potential of trade in fresh produce in the entire region, and how ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA can complement the market development of these diverse and emerging markets.
The upcoming informative session in Jakarta will analyze the growing demand for fresh produce in the Indonesian market, one of the countries that is showing the biggest surge in fruit and vegetable exports, according to the latest figures published by PROMPERU.
Peru, whose average annual increase of 4.9% in its GDP makes it one of the Latin American countries with the highest growth rates, has seen its agricultural exports represent an increasingly growing proportion of its total exports. The Latin American nation is the world leader in exports of asparagus and quinoa; second in blueberries, avocados and mandarins; and third in grapes. In the case of Indonesia, Peru is already exporting fresh grapes, pomegranates and processed maca and camu camu to the Asian nation.
Asia is one of Peru’s top trading partners and Peru seeks to consolidate by expanding existing trade agreements and firming up trade negotiations currently underway with different countries in the region. Peru has placed a high priority on growing its trade with the region. Peru’s presence at highcaliber events, such as ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA, which it has been attending since its first edition, are a key factor in the country’s international trade promotional strategy. Business deals concluded in ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA 2019 were estimated to be US$180 million.
