José A. Bellina, Ambassador of the Republic of Peru to Canada, called for closer economic and trade relations with Québec during an official visit to Québec City on October 22.

He pointed out that Québec is home to Canada’s largest Peruvian community, which has a population of close to 16,000.

In 2012, Québec exports to Peru totalled $71 million and imports from Peru amounted to $117 million.
