Utah Signs Memorandum of Understanding with Peru

Press Release

June 18, 2013

Salt Lake City — The Governor’s Office of Economic Development’s (GOED) Director of International Trade and Diplomacy, Harvey Scott, met with Pervuian President Ollanta Humala and other Peruvian dignitaries to sign a Memorandum of Understanding Tuesday at the Embassy of Peru in Washington DC.

“This was a historic event as the MOU formalizes the relationship between Peru and Utah and establishes concerted actions in sustainable economic development for years to come,” said Scott.

President Humala specifically requested Utah’s presence at the Embassy of Peru in Washington D.C. since Utah has shown sustained interest in Peru’s economic development over many years. The memorandum signed states that Utah will work to ameliorate issues relating to economic development, education, and technology innovation in Peru. One example is water issues, where Utah institutions and companies will facilitate policy and technology to help Peru better manage its water.

Utah has been working with Hugo Jara, Peru’s director of the National Authority on Water (ANA), who plans to visit Utah to understand Utah’s water management and to look at new technologies established or created here so that Peru can better manage their water across the entire country.

In attendance with Harvey Scott on Tuesday were representatives of the University of Utah, Utah State University, Weber State University and Brigham Young University. The representatives each delivered a letter to the president saying that they are committed to working with Peru’s educational institutions on faculty exchanges and student exchanges, as well as doing research

Footage of the meeting and ceremony can be viewed here.
