Share Perspective From Peru: Latin America Tiger

Event Details

Please join the Trade Alliance in welcoming Harold Forsyth, Ambassador of Peru to the United States, to Greater Seattle.

One of the fastest growing economies in Latin American, Peru has sustained an average growth rate of 6.4% each year since 2002.  

Peru’s economy underwent reform in the early 1990s, doing much to lay the groundwork for today’s growth which continues to be fueled by the country’s wealth of natural resources, foreign investment and young population. According to HSBC Bank, Peru is “the third fastest growing consumer market globally, and set to be a bigger economy than Chile, Colombia, or even South Africa long term”.

As the U.S. is Peru’s leading source of imports, key opportunities lie in helping to develop Peru’s infrastructure as the country works to meet growing demand. Specifically, this means Peru’s power generation and hydroelectric, construction, engineering and telecommunications.

The Seattle Art Museum will be hosting a major exhibition of Peruvian art beginning October 2013. For information on the exhibition, please visit the Seattle Art Museum.

Harold W. Forsyth became Ambassador of Peru to the United States in 2011. Prior to his appointment, Ambassador Forsyth served as Ambassador of Peru to China, Ambassador of Peru to San Marino and Turkey, Ambassador of Peru to Italy and Ambassador of Peru to Columbia.

Ambassador Forsyth studied journalism at Pontifical Catholic University of Peru and international relations and diplomacy at the Diplomatic Academy of Peru. He is the author of the book Conversation with Javier Pérez de Cuéllar (2001). He has directed a radio program, two television shows, and a newspaper, and has received a dozen decorations for his diplomatic work.
