Carlos Pareja, Peru’s ambassador to the United States, was in Atlanta yesterday; by way of Business Council for International Understanding. Pareja meet with major local business leaders and others from around the U.S. The Council is a Washington D.C. based group created from initiatives by past president Dwight Eisenhower. The organization creates a dialogue between business leaders and government officials. What was exactly talked about in this private meeting was off the record but the ambassador did discuss some broader themes such as the political and economic developments in his country. Peru is not only part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, but also the Pacific Alliance (which includes Mexico. Colombia and Chile). While the TPP has been put at risk by our Current President (who called it one of the worst trade deals in history), it’s encouraging to see a continuing dialogue between the countries, despite our idiot-in-chief trying to mess everything up and isolate the United States from the rest of the world.
