The Peruvian government has announced the opening of a Commercial Office of Peru Abroad (OCEX for its Spanish acronym) in New Delhi, capital of India.
The announcement was made by the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism, or Mincetur, through a supreme resolution issued on Tuesday.
On the initiative of Peru's export and tourism promotion agency PromPeru, the new OCEX aims to contribute to sustained economic growth in Peru by promoting its exports of goods and services.
It also seeks to promote tourism, investment and business opportunities in the country, as part of the National Strategic Plan for Tourism (Pentur) and the National Strategic Export Plan (Penx).
Mincetur plans to increase the number of trade offices abroad from the current 18 to 34 next year.
