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.

The PAI includes four modalities of intervention: promotion of exports, consolidation of export activity and international tenders, franchises and the commercial implementation to attend to different stages in the internationalisation process. Each modality consists of two components. The first consists of the elaboration of an internationalisation plan, while the second is the execution of the plan.

Intervention areas: Amazonas, Arequipa, Ayacucho, Cajamarca, Cusco, Junin, La Libertad, Lambayeque, Lima, Madre de Dios, Piura, San Martin and Tacna.
