Junior Team Canada Mission to Peru 2015
LIMA // February 11-20, 2015
In the lead up to Canada’s role as host of the Pan Am/Para Pan Am Games in 2015, the Junior Team Canada Mission to Peru will serve to strengthen cultural and economic ties between Canada and Peru. The 2015 Mission will build on successful JTC Missions to Peru in 2008 & 2009 and support the Government of Canada’s Global Markets Action Plan by promoting Canadian businesses and organizations in the rapidly growing Peruvian economy.
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: 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.
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.
