President Ollanta Humala arrived in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday, ahead of the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.
Humala was spotted going for a run in Rio de Janeiro, ahead of official meetings early on Wednesday morning.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Rafael Roncagliolo and Environment Minister Manuel Pulgar-Vidal accompanied the president on the trip, according to Andina.
President Humala is expected to attend the inauguration ceremony at the Mountain Pavilion, and scheduled to deliver a speech at the plenary conference.
The president is also slated to attend an official reception hosted by Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff.
This year the conference will focus on two themes: green economies within the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication; and institutional framework for sustainable development.
