Portugal’s Prime Minister, Pedro Passos Coelho, will travel to Lima on Monday, as part of a two-day official visit to Peru.
Portugal’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Paulo Portas, and a delegation of about 50 Portuguese entrepreneurs will accompany Coelho on the visit, Andina reported.
According to Peru's Foreign Ministry, President Ollanta Humala will meet with the prime minister, and sign cooperation agreements that would benefit the country’s consular affairs, as well as the tourism industry.
The ministry added that the visit’s aim was to deepen and strengthen bilateral relationships and cooperation, between both countries.
Meanwhile the Portuguese business delegation is scheduled to meet with Peruvian business executives, and participate in a business roundtable.
Portugal’s exports to Peru, from January to April, grew by 8.4 million Euros, twice the amount recorded during the same period in 2011, Andina reported.
After his visit in Lima, Coelho is slated to travel to Brazil, where he will participate in the United Nation’s Rio +20 conference.
