According to the source, the meetings between binational authorities and entrepreneurs will be held in La Paz today and in Santa Cruz on Wednesday, September 14.
The second meeting will be held at the Chamber of Exporters in Santa Cruz de la Sierra.
According to the Port Services Administration, up to June this year, a record figure of 72,282 tons left through the Peruvian port of Ilo.
The so-called binational cabinets and the good communication between Bolivia’s President Luis Arce and Peru’s Pedro Castillo promote Bolivian export projects through the Peruvian pots of Ilo and Matarani.
During the most recent bilateral meeting held in La Paz in October, the two presidents agreed to work together to prioritize pending investments to develop southern Peru and “give Bolivia a real alternative in its foreign trade.”
