JTC Peru 2019
LIMA: February 13-23, 2018
Global Vision will lead a Junior Team Canada Trade and Development Mission to Peru to strengthen our cultural and economic ties between Canada and Peru. The 2019 Mission will build on our successful JTC Missions to Peru in 2015 & 2016 promoting Canadian businesses and organizations in the rapidly growing Peruvian economy. This mission is very timely given the recent signing of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) of which Canada and Peru are members, in May 2018.
During the Mission, JTC will focus on showcasing Canadian secondary and post-secondary education opportunities for Peruvian students. We will engage Peruvian students through school visits, presentations, receptions and meetings with international recruitment agencies and Ministry of Education officials. Junior Team Canada will also identify trade opportunities for Canadian companies and organizations in several sectors including: agriculture, environment, finance, and mining & natural resources. To accomplish this, we have worked closely with the Canadian Embassy in Peru and the Peruvian-Canadian Chamber of Commerce to coordinate opportunities to engage Peruvian industry, government, community and youth leaders.
Our mission will also focus on development challenges such as; economic growth for poor communities; democratic participation; health; education; and food security. Our Junior Team Canada Ambassadors will work together with Peruvian youth leaders to open up the dialogue on these pressing development issues and develop innovative solutions that can be implemented in their very own communities.
Upon our return to Canada, JTC will produce market sector reports that will include a summary of the Mission, market intelligence gathered, opportunities identified for Canadian enterprises and key contacts made. We will also present our innovative solutions to the development challenges to the Government of Canada.
