Lima, March 27, 2020.-

The Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada’s (PDAC) 2020 Convention—the world’s premier mineral exploration and mining event—registered 23 thousand attendees. Peru offered, in this convention, the largest number of activities for investors and global entrepreneurs. Its delegation consisted of 316 participants, all leaders in the Peruvian mining sector, including high-ranking Government officials and the main promoters of the country's economy.

The Canada-Peru Chamber of Commerce (CPCC), as the authorized entity in charge of organizing the Peruvian delegation’s activities in PDAC 2020, managed to notably increase the presence and participation of foreign executives at the Peruvian stand, surpassing by 11% what was achieved in previous years (from 40% in 2019 to 51% in 2020).

This select group of investors was made up of CEOs, presidents, corporation owners, among other senior executives, who participated in key activities such as Peru Day, the CEO Luncheon, the Peruvian Cocktail and the Executive Breakfast with Mining Leaders.

This increase favors the country, generating greater opportunities and investments, which help consolidate Peru as one of the world’s most attractive destinations for mining investment. "The extensive geological potential, competitive costs, experienced human talent and world-class mining projects, mark a clear competitive advantage," highlighted the Peruvian Minister of Energy and Mines, Susana Vilca during her presentation at PDAC 2020.

Additionally, the Minister of Economy and Finance, María Antonieta Alva, pointed out Peru’s solid macroeconomic foundations and its opening to the international market, during her presentation at CEO Luncheon.



  • The Peruvian delegation is made up of leaders from the public and private sectors, led by the highest-ranking representative from the Peruvian Government, top executives from the mining sector, and the most prominent promoters of the country's economy.
