We invite you to participate in a Team Finland visit to Peru led by State Secretary Mr. Kimmo Tiilikainen on the occasion of Expo Agua Peru 2019 event in Lima on 15–18 October.
Expo Agua is the main water management expo in Peru and one of the biggest of its kind in Latin America. More than 7000 visitors from all over Latin America are expected to visit the Expo this year, bringing together leading companies, decision makers, international experts, students and end users from the water sector and related fields such as mining, sanitation, agriculture and energy.
Finland is honored to be the host country of the Expo this year and will have a well-located 60m2 Finnish booth at the fair. This is a great opportunity for Finnish companies to showcase their knowledge and solutions in water and related fields, explore new business possibilities, as well as to establish relationships with local authorities and potential business partners.
Peru is the fourth largest market in South America with its 32 million inhabitants. Its capital Lima is the world’s second largest capital city located in a desert, and currently its potable water system relies on only three river basins. Improving the water and sanitation service is a priority for the current Government.
In 2019 alone, the public sector in Peru will launch up to 16 sanitation and water management projects, and investments in this sector are projected to reach up to 16 billion USD by 2021. This is a great opportunity for Finnish companies to showcase their offering and explore business opportunities in Peru.
Finland has a strong reputation in Peru as a birthplace of technology innovations, education and clean nature. The need for Finnish water expertise in Peru is especially strong in the fields of:
- Water utility modernization;
- Municipal water and wastewater treatment;
- Industrial water and wastewater treatment;
- Water treatment in the mining sector;
- Flood prevention;
- Water quality and water flow monitoring and control;
- Dam safety;
- Smart Water: ICT solutions for water.
