Hitachi, Mitsubishi and Hyundai interested in Lima Metro Lines 3 & 4
Japanese and South Korean investors have expressed their interest in the concession of Lima Metro Lines 3 & 4, which was announced on the sidelines of Road Show Asia 2015 organized by Peru in Tokyo, Seoul and Beijing.
Proinversion Investment Director Javier Correa confirmed that, in the case of Japan, both Hitachi (one of the leading suppliers of rolling stock) and Mitsubishi have shown interest in such megaprojects.
Representatives of both transnational corporations participated in bilateral meetings held in Japan and South Korea within the framework of Road Show Asia 2015. Japanese investors have also expressed their eagerness to invest in mining and port infrastructure projects.
South Korea’s Hyundai Rotem is also interested in the concession of Lima Metro Lines 3 and 4. It is worth mentioning that sanitation and drinking water-related sectors are also attractive to Korean businessmen.
South Korean companies such as Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction, Dohwa Engineering and Hyundai Engineering held a series of bilateral meetings with Peruvian businessmen and government officials such as the Proinversion Investment Director.
Proinversion has recently informed the Lima Metro Line 3 feasibility study will be completed late this year, whereas Line 4’s will be ready in 2016.
“I can conclude that significant interest has been given to several investment portfolio projects by Asian investors attending this Road Show Asia 2015,” Correa added.
