After severe damage caused by the El Nino climate cycle in Peru in 2017, the Department of International Trade (DIT) today signed a G2G agreement with the Government of Peru to support the decisive reconstruction of public institutions. We are convinced that the signing of this agreement and its immediate implementation will become, in the months and years to come, an important instrument for the economic recovery of our country. Today, the agreement was signed by the Peruvian government, represented by the Reconstruction Authority with Amendments (ARCC), and by the British government, represented by DIT. The ministry will assist UK companies Mace Limited, Arup Ltd and Gleeds International Ltd in implementing the reconstruction programme. Knowledge transfer is at the heart of the UK approach and a common interest in ensuring the resilience and sustainability of infrastructure projects to the effects of climate change.

He also recalled the excellent experience of working together at the 2019 Pan American Games and stressed that the signing of the agreement could not be more timely considering that the El Nio phenomenon is a sign of the difficult conditions we are facing due to climate change. In this sense, the experience of the United Kingdom and the vision of the Peruvian government will create a more prosperous, inclusive and resilient future. Minister Stuart thanked the Peruvian government for choosing the United Kingdom for this task, as the agreement is a clear example of the common vision of the two governments, which is the need to develop public services and build resilience. In this sense, he stressed that this was a historic moment for both countries. This agreement will apply for two years between July 2020 and June 2022 and may be extended by one year.
