Peruvian President Ends China Visit with Support for Pacific-Atlantic Railroad

Beijing, November 13 (RHC-EFE) -- Peruvian President Ollanta Humala wrapped up his visit to China on Wednesday, after securing Beijing's support for building a railroad that connects the Atlantic and Pacific oceans passing through Peruvian and Brazilian territory.

Following his participation in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit on Monday and Tuesday, Humala met with Chinese President Xi Jinping and local businessmen, who were encouraged by the Peruvian head of state to do business in Peru, citing the country's stability and favorable investment climate.

During the meeting, Xi said that China will actively participate in construction of the railway, according to the Chinese state news agency Xinhua.

After the meeting, the two leaders signed seven bilateral agreements, one of which was a memorandum of understanding for the creation of a business group that will proceed to establish the so-called "Twin Ocean Railroad Connection" between Peru and Brazil.

The two presidents also signed an economic cooperation agreement and other agreements in the fields of hydrocarbons and mining, in addition to the export to Peru of Chinese-made wheelchairs.

After concluding his visit to China, the Peruvian head of state left to Vatican City to meet Pope Francis, in what will be the last stop in his international tour, during which he also paid a visit to Russia.
