Export opportunities in the UK-Peru G2G reconstruction programme

Last updated 09 November 2020

Peru GREAT Partnership

Following severe damage caused by climate cycle El Niño in Peru in 2017, the Department for International Trade (DIT) signed a government-to-government (G2G) agreement in June 2020 with the Government of Peru to support the reconstruction of the country’s public-services facilities.

The reconstruction programme, which is valued at £1.7 billion, will take place across 13 regions of Peru. It includes:

  • Construction/refurbishment of 74 schools

  • Construction of 15 hospitals and healthcare facilities

  • Construction of flood-prevention infrastructure including 19 river basins, 7 drainage systems and 5 gullies

The programme’s UK delivery team (Arup, Gleeds and Mace) will deliver technical assistance on all of this work as well as provide project management.

How UK companies can get involved

Following the success of the UK-Peru G2G agreement for the Lima 2019 Pan American Games, this is another great example of UK-Peru collaboration. It provides a significant opportunity for the UK’s infrastructure industry to partner with Peruvian companies on innovative and efficient solutions for long-term disaster resilience. UK businesses in the construction, water, education and healthcare supply chains are perfectly placed to get involved.
