Diplomatic Relations

Peru and Singapore maintain a close and strong bilateral relation since the establishment of diplomatic relation among both countries in 1980. Some years after, in 1992, Peru established its resident Diplomatic Mission in Singapore.

Peru and Singapore show a common interest in the promotion of free and fair trade, not only to boost the growth of our economies and the welfare of our population but only as a way to show to the international society that a world with open markets will bring more peace and equality.

Said message is delivered by Peru and Singapore in several international forums and agreements in which both countries participate or are State Parts, such as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum - APEC and the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership - CPTPP.

The aim of Singapore to be an Associate State to the Pacific Alliance, the tight relation of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations -ASEAN with Latin America, the strengthening of the Forum of East Asia–Latin America Cooperation -FEALAC and the improvement of the connectivity between Southeast Asia and Latin America, are concrete aspects that show our common mind-set and strengthen the bilateral ties between both countries.

Other areas of mutual interest are cooperation in topics such as control and prevention of drug trafficking and associated crimes; defence and security, particularly in maritime issues; science and technology; education; environmental issues and sustainable management of water resources; and tourism and cultural promotion.
