Peru May Reach Trade Agreement With EU Next Week, Andina Says

By Alex Emery

Feb. 18 (Bloomberg) — Peru may conclude negotiations for a free trade agreement with the European Union next week, state news agency Andina reported.

The ninth round of negotiations between the EU, Peru and Colombia to be held Feb. 22-26 in Brussels will probably be the last, Andina said, citing Hans Allden, the head of the European Commission delegation in Peru.

The accord may be ratified at an EU-Latin America summit to be held in May in Madrid before being voted on at the European Parliament, Allden told Andina.
