Trade Mission to Chile and Peru

April 1-30, 2023
Chile & Peru

The Iowa Economic Development Authority will lead a multi-industry trade mission to Chile and Peru open to any Iowa manufacturing and commercial companies. The targeted Latin America countries of Chile and Peru are rapidly growing economies. Both countries have free trade agreements with the U.S., which provides opportunities for reduced barriers and increased profitability. In addition to creating more open markets, the free trade agreements have strengthened protection for intellectual property, regulatory transparency, and requires effective labor and environmental enforcement.

The trade mission is an in-country travel opportunity for companies to receive market research, matchmaking with potential customers or partners, and travel with the IEDA trade mission group to have a week of in-country one-on-one meetings. Even though it is group travel, business appointments and itineraries are customized for each individual company to help them achieve their business goals for the trip.
