BROSETA, sponsor of the Peru International Infrastructure Summit
BROSETA partners Rosa Vidal and Julio Veloso have participated in the meeting called ‘Peru International Infrastructure Summit’, held in Lima on the 28th and 29th of January, where there has been an exclusive gathering of, executives, investors, project developers, leaders of related infrastructure and officials of the Peruvian Government in the field of design and the tender of projects to discuss and reflect on the opportunities for investment in infrastructure in Peru.
Peru is, today, one of Latin America’s fastest growing markets, and counts among its main priorities promotion of the development of transport infrastructures, with the aim of improving the competitiveness of the country and to become a logistics centre and strategic hub between Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region. In this sense, in 2014 more than 9000 infrastructure projects were approved in the country, with a value higher than the 11 billion dollars, and the Government has an investment forecast in this area of more than 20 billion dollars directed to projects like the asphalting of 85 roads of the national road network, the consolidation of the network of the Lima Metro, national bridges program (which provides for installing this year up to 450 bridges in the country) and the Digital Inclusion (whose objective is to bring high-capacity connectivity to 180 provincial capitals).
The meeting, which was sponsored by BROSETA, featured personalities such as José Gallardo, Minister of transport and communications of Peru; Herry Zaira, Deputy Minister of transport; Anwar Choudhury, British Ambassador in Lima; Fidel Jaramillo, representative in Peru for the Inter-American Development Bank; Carlos Herrera, executive director of ProInversion; and Edgar Patiño, Chairman of the Board of the national port authority, among others. Rosa Vidal, partner-Director of the firm’s Public law area, moderated one of the round tables that were held during the celebration of the event.
In the Ibero-American context, BROSETA leads an Alliance of law firms called the Legal Ibero-American network, which aims to deepen the knowledge of the countries of the region and its legislation, to establish new ways of collaboration and facilitate the promotion of investment between Latin American countries and Europe.
