Programme to Promote Internationalisation (PAI) in Peru

The Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (MINCETUR) proposed to the Steering Committee of the MSMEs Fund the creation of the Internationalization Support Program (PAI), which is part of the National Export Strategic Plan PENX 2025, one of its main objectives being the internationalization of Peruvian companies. The PAI was approved on February 29, 2016, with a focus on supporting companies to increase sales and exports, as well as the diversification of international markets.

The objective of PAI is to strengthen, promote and foster the internationalization process of exporting companies, contributing to improve their competitiveness, minimizing their risks and optimizing their capacities and management skills in foreign trade projects.
