The Peruvian Navy training ship BAP Union will promote tourism to and exports from Peru, as well as serve as a space to hold business rounds with entrepreneurs from other nations, Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister Rocio Barrios has highlighted.

"Who doesn't want to get on the world's second largest ship? Obviously, that is an incentive so that we —thanks to the agreement existing with the Navy— can show not only our tourism wealth to generate precisely that expectation. Thus, they (travelers) will visit us, and we can also show them the great products that we have in Peru," she expressed.

Remarks were made from Paracas, where the high-ranking official arrived and highlighted the agreement signed with the Peruvian Navy.

"Given its very nature, the BAP Union has the faculty and capacity, supported by its majesty, to become our trade office and a space to show Peru around the world," she affirmed.

The Cabinet member mentioned that star Peruvian export products and sectoral brands such as Superfoods Peru; Pisco, Spirit of Peru; Cafes del Peru; or Alpaca del Peru will be promoted abroad.

This way, the ship will visit national and international ports and provide information about the Inca country's flagship products: pisco, asparagus, tangerines, paprika, anchovies, seafood, avocados, and pomegranates, among others; also about the Peruvian tourist destinations that can be visited soon.

In addition, it features an itinerant "Casa Peru" (Peru House).

"In 2021, the ship will make a tour of the Americas, promoting inbound tourism in strategic countries. Likewise, through coordinated efforts with the Peruvian Exports and Tourism Promotion Board's (PromPeru) Trade Offices abroad and diplomatic missions, promotional actions will be carried out at the international ports of destination," she explained.
