不同于过去的陆上丝绸之路和海上丝绸之路，“一带一路（The Belt and Road）”意味着更多条“带”和更多条“路”的拓展。这不仅限于亚欧大陆或者非洲，目前，“一带一路”已经走向了南美洲，其热度也在持续升温。
The Economic Observer：Could you introduce the work of CPIDA.
Alfredo Rolando ：China Peru Investment Development Association（CPIDA）,acts as a bridge between Chinese and Peruvian companies, in order to allow them to collaborate and form strategic long term partnerships. We promote Peruvian investment projects in China and also help Chinese companies expand their businesses in Peru.
The Economic Observer：Why you set up this association?
阿尔弗莱德：自该项目计划一年前成立以来,我和合作创始人奥弗拉（Offra Elmkies）女士一直在致力于相关的工作，建立这个协会就是为了让秘鲁成为中国最好的投资目的地。原因如下：1. 秘鲁是拉美地区增长最快的经济体；2. 秘鲁具有稳定的政治环境和货币政策；3. 秘鲁是一个新兴市场，几个重点的行业投资机会包括矿业、能源、基础设施、渔业、房地产、农业、旅游和服务等；4. 中国是秘鲁最大的贸易伙伴，两国拥有优秀的外交关系。中国文化对秘鲁文化也具有很大的影响力。
Alfredo Rolando ：I have been working on this initiative alongside fellow co founder Ms. Offra Elmkies for about one year. We set up this association in order to position Peru as the best investment destination for Chinese capital. There are several reasons:1. Peru is the fastest growing economy in the Latin American region; 2.Peru has political and monetary stability; 3. Peru is an emerging market with investment opportunities in several key industries: mining, energy, infrastructure, fisheries, real estate, agribusiness, tourism and services; 4. China is Peru's largest trading partner and both countries have excellent diplomatic relations. There is a large element of Chinese influence in the Peruvian culture.
The Economic Observer：Have you heard the "Belt and Road Initiative"?
Alfredo Rolando ：When I first traveled to china on a trade delegation organized by the Bank of China. "Belt and Road Initiative" is what motivates us to help promote Peru within China because of the deep interest of Chinese to expand abroad. We decide that Peru should be in a position to welcome Chinese Economic expansion.
The Economic Observer：We noticed that the "Belt and Road Initiative" was put forward in 2013, why start your work in 2016?
Alfredo Rolando: I didn't understand it as deep as this time and before that I didn’t have first hand experience of this concept. Once we visited China, we were determined to begin our mission. We acted very aggressively now because it was a golden time between the Chinese and Peruvian economies, since the Peruvian president visited President Xi in September, 2016 and after that in November,president Xi visited Peru immediately。
The Economic Observer：What achievement does your association make at this time?
Alfredo Rolando ：We have raised awareness during several events like China LAC business summit in Tangshan, China Overseas Investment Fair in Beijing, Bank of China SME business forum in Zhengzhou and also during APEC 2016 in Lima Peru.We co-hosted a reception for the official Chinese delegation that accompanies president Xi to APEC 2016 in Peru, other co-host were Apec China Business Council, CCPIT and CCOIC
The Economic Observer：Could you tell me more about the investment in Peru?
Alfredo Rolando ：Peru needs investment in several sectors，like I mentioned before. Of course the most attractive one is mining，Here are already several Chinese mining companies in Peru，There are over 170 Chinese companies already doing business in Peru，Chinalco, china min metals, shogun steel, CNBC, ICBC, Bank of China, sino hydro, ... We also received a business delegation from Chengdu provincein March 20, 2017, 10 from Chengdu, 10 from Peru. We give them an introduction to the benefits of doing business in Peru and introduced matchmaking opportunities. The meeting with Chengdu was very introductory, because they knew nothing about Peru,this was the very first Peruvian encounter and business discovery for them. We organized potential matchmaking with Peruvian counterparts, Peruvians looking for Chinese partners and Chinese were interested in learning about opportunities in Peru.They will talk and discuss the opportunities, to find the mutual demands and win-win opportunities. The association has a network of high-level contacts in all Peruvian industries and politics，and Peru has highly favorable environment for foreign investment.
The Economic Observer：What is your anticipation for the future?
Alfredo Rolando ：Right now 86% of Chinese imports from Peru is in mining，I believe further Chinese investment in other sectors that's are highly competitive.World wide will allow this number to become spread over several sectors. I hope that Chinese investment in Peru will help both economies achieve win-win cooperation possibilities that will enable further growth and development. Agribusiness, energy, real estate, infrastructure projects and fishing are important upcoming markets.
