Why Colombia and Peru?

The governments of Colombia and Peru, as well as private educational institutions, are eager to acquire cutting-edge education technology and supplies to prepare citizens for the 21st century workforce. As the world leader in education technology solutions, U.S. firms are well-suited to work with educational institutions in Colombia and Peru to engage students at many different levels. With growing middle classes that seek greater educational opportunities, the technology provided by U.S. firms is in strong demand.

 

Overview

The U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service in conjunction with Partners of the Americas is organizing an Executive Service to Colombia and Peru. The purpose of the Executive Service is to introduce U.S. education technology and supply firms to the rapidly expanding education sectors in these two countries and to assist U.S. companies in pursuing opportunities in this sector. U.S. companies will attend pre-scheduled networking meetings with potential agents, distributors, end-users, industry contacts, and government officials for the goal of launching or increasing exports.

 

Executive Service participants will:

• Gain market insights

• Make industry contacts via featured tours and networking events

• Solidify business strategies

• Advance specific projects across these markets

• Identify potential partners
