Our Asian Investment Desk was born as the natural response of Rodrigo, Elías & Medrano to the increasing interest of Asian investors for the opportunities that our country offers them.
It is the result of a long formation process, during which the members of our team have learned the culture, values and legal needs of a predominant region in the global economy, with a view to offer Asian clients the services they require in the manner they are used to.
The main objective of the Asian Investment Desk is that investors from China, India, Indonesia, Malasia, the Middle East, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Vietnam, and Asia, in general, find in Rodrigo, Elías & Medrano the ideal partner to explore, analyze, decide, negotiate and set the most convenient legal structures for the profitability of their Peruvian endeavors.
China is Peru’s main commercial partner and the sole country in the region that has entered into a Free Trade Agreement and into a Strategic Alliance Agreement with China, making it recipient of large amounts of Chinese investment. This close commercial relationship is the result of consistent investment policies that the Republic of Peru has been fostering since 1992, upon the arrival of the first Chinese direct investments into the country.
President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski’s official visit to China, as well as the visit of President Xi Jinping to Peru will significantly boost bilateral relations between both countries and aid to diversify commercial and investment opportunities. Rodrigo, Elías & Medrano is prepared to provide highly specialized services to those Asian and, of course, Chinese investors due to their relevance, who plan to carry out commercial activities in the country.
