In July 2018 the DIT office in Lima held a Trade Mission for UK companies interested in the Lima 2019 Pan and ParaPan American Games. Delegates explored opportunities in sectors including logistics, housekeeping, catering, overlay and security.

Highlights of the trip included a networking reception and visits to three of the key venues. They also had the opportunity to meet the Lima 2019 Organising Committee, local companies and the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). Delegates took part in an interactive session with specialists on taxes and doing business in Peru. Those interested in opportunities being procured through UNOPS and the Peruvian public procurement system received additional expert advice from these key companies.

This mission is an example of DIT support to UK companies working towards exporting to Peru for Lima 2019. Find out about more exciting export opportunities and create a trade profile to enable international buyers to find you at
