Humala Sets Off for Spain to Promote Economic and Cultural Ties

LIMA – Peruvian President Ollanta Humala left for Madrid on Sunday for a state visit beginning Tuesday, aimed at boosting economic and cultural ties with Spain, official sources told EFE.

The president’s airplane took off from Lima at around 21:30 local time.

Ollanta and his wife, Nadine Heredia, will be received by the Spanish monarchs in a ceremony Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Humala will meet the Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, the Senate President and President of the Spanish Congress.

The visit will promote investment by small and medium sized Spanish companies in Peru as well as expand cultural ties between the two countries, the Peruvian Foreign Ministry announced.

Spain is a major direct investor in Peru, with investments exceeding $5 billion and a presence of large companies and around 400 small and medium sized enterprises.

During his visit, Humala will also hold a meeting with businessmen under the Spanish Confederation of Business Organizations and visit the Real Academia Española (Spanish Royal Academy), to inaugurate a travelling exhibition on Mochica art of ancient Peru.

This is Humala’s third visit to Spain since he came to power in 2011.

His first visit was in January 2012 and in November 2012 he had attended the Ibero-American Summit in Cadiz.

The Peruvian delegation also includes the President of the Council of Ministers, Pedro Cateriano; Minister of Foreign Relations, Ana Maria Sanchez and Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism, Magali Silva.
