Ministry of Agriculture Sees the Potential in the Trade Mission

Jose Alpuche

C.E.O. in the Ministry of Agriculture Jose Alpuche also weighed in on the trade mission. Alpuche told the press that apart from attracting new investments and opening new markets, this kind of mission can attract new technologies and practices. At the end of the mission, BELTRAIDE will be holding a review session to get feedback from the investors.

“We believe it is a very good initiative because it will help us to diversify both our investment portfolio in the sector but also too when we do attract new investors they usually bring new practices and new technologies. For this, though, what is important is that they could potentially open access to the Asian markets, which are markets that we do have some market penetration but certainly there is much more we can do.    They are doing literally a tour of the country, all the way to PG and coming back up. The Ministry of Trade and BELTRAIDE has organized a close out session on Friday and we will have a far better view of what the possibilities are.”
