STAMFORD – Stamford city mayor, Michael Pavia, departs today to Peru’s capital, Lima, to harbor economic, educational and cultural relations between the two cities.

He will travel together with Stamford Economic Development Director, Laure Aubuchon, and other delegates to finalize the sister city status established between the two cities in 2009, according to the Stamford Advocate.

Pavia will meet with Lima’s mayor, Susana Villaran De La Puente and other national officials. They will discuss economic opportunities and ways for the two cities to collaborate for business growth, education and other opportunities.

Stamford has a large Peruvian-American community, and the Peruvian-American Community Center of Connecticut is situated in Stamford. Several Peruvian-American business owners are also making the trip to Lima to participate in talks.

Representatives from the city and the business community will be making subsequent trips to Lima, and officials from the University of Connecticut are also planning a trip to Lima to see about establishing exchange programs with Peruvian universities.

There is also a potential for some form of exchange to be set up for high school students. Stamford public high school students studying Spanish could participate in an e-mail exchange program with Peruvian students studying English.
