Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Kimberly Breier will be in Lima, Peru, June 15-18 for meetings with Minister of Foreign Relations Nestor Popolizio, Minister of Economy and Finance Carlos Oliva, and Minister of Defense Jose Huerta, among other Peruvian officials.  They will discuss shared efforts to fight transnational criminal organizations, Peru’s leadership and support for democracy in Venezuela and the Venezuelan people, and economic topics such as recognition of ten years of the U.S.-Peru Trade Promotion Agreement.  Assistant Secretary Breier will also engage with women business advocates to encourage greater economic prosperity and promote the role of women in economic growth.  She will meet with recently arrived Venezuelan refugees and migrants to better understand their experience fleeing Venezuela and making a new home in Peru.  Peru generously hosts an estimated 800,000 Venezuelan refugees and migrants and is a founder of the Lima Group, which includes the leading democracies of the hemisphere supporting the Venezuelan people as they struggle to restore democracy in their country
