Lima, Feb. 01 (ANDINA). Representatives from 20 U.S. companies are exploring investment opportunities in Peru and Ecuador, said USDA's Acting Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services Michael Scuse. Entrepreneurs from the United States, Peru and Ecuador will meet to evaluate the sectors with the greatest potential in the framework of the Agribusiness Trade and Investment Mission which will last until February 2. "The group will meet with 150 Peruvian and Ecuadorian entrepreneurs from several sectors such as the agricultural and the food industry," he said. Scuse further noted that the mission represents the commitment of Barack Obama's administration to contribute with the development of the region. "Our relation with Peru is as strong as possible. We have doubled the exports since the coming into effect of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA)," Scuse stated.
