Colombia and Peru Education IT Trade Mission – June 5-7, 2018

Why Colombia and Peru?
The governments of Colombia and Peru, as well as private educational institutions, are eager to acquire cutting-edge education technology and supplies to prepare citizens for the 21st century workforce. As the world leader in education technology solutions, U.S. firms are well-suited to work with educational institutions in Colombia and Peru to engage students at many different levels. With growing middle classes that seek greater educational opportunities, the technology provided by U.S. firms is in strong demand.
