The introduction was a part of the activities organized by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Perú (PeruCámaras) on March 15, 2011. The event was aimed to be a meeting place between 62 representatives of the regional chamber of commerce and foreign embassies in Perú. In the event, the embassy explained the Indonesian economic progress and growth, also the list of business contacts who can be reached by Peruvian entrepreneurs.
Disseminating information about Indonesia's main products is necessary in the midst of the developing bilateral economic relations between Indonesia and Perú.
According to the Indonesian Ministry of Commerce, the bilateral trade between the two countries in the period of 2005-2010 showed an increase of 9.33%. In 2010, the bilateral trade reached 125 million dollars, an increase of 43% from the bilateral trade in 2009 which reached 87 million dollars. From the year 2006-2010, Indonesia has always enjoyed a trade surplus, a positive sign for the promotion of Indonesian export products in Perú.
At the cocktail event hosted by Peru Cámaras, the embassy was given a chance to perform a solo cultural performance in front of about 100 businessmen and invitees. The Angklung group played a series of Spanish song and the dance group performed two dances, Tabal Gempita and Bambu Gila (crazy bamboo). These performances were warmly appraised by the audience. The Indonesian embassy has not only introduced the potential of Indonesia's economy to them, but also has introduced the cultural diversity of Indonesia.
