“In time of economic difficulties in some part of the world, Southeast Asia is the healthy place for business opportunity for the Latin American States like Peru and the Pacific Alliance for the next 30-50 years,” stated H.E. Mr. Roberto Seminario, Ambassador of Peru to ASEAN. Ambassador Seminario expressed appreciation to ASEAN and its Member States for organising the ASEAN-Latin American Business Forum last year and the Forum for East Asia-Latin America Cooperation Meeting this year, which provided interacting opportunities for business circles in both continents. However, he stressed that both ASEAN and Latin American groupings could do more to reach out to all business communities and further foster cooperation for the benefit of both peoples.
Ambassador Seminario spoke on the occasion of presentation of the Letter of Credence to H.E. Le Luong Minh, Secretary-General of ASEAN today at the ASEAN Secretariat. Ambassador Seminario also expressed Peru’s interest in forging further cooperation between Peru as well as the Pacific Alliance with ASEAN.
SG Minh congratulated Ambassador Seminario for assuming his post as Ambassador of Peru to ASEAN and expressed his hope that the ASEAN Secretariat as well as ASEAN would work closely with the Embassy of Peru to ASEAN to further enhance cooperation with Peru.
