The Peruvian Agency for International Cooperation (APCI) and the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) today agreed to share their successful experiences with countries in Latin America, with the aim of forging partnerships and expanding South-South and Triangular Cooperation.
To this end, the Executive Director of the APCI, José Antonio González Norris; and Vice president of Programs Global Alliance of KOICA, Woong-yeob SONG, signed the ‘Memorandum of Understanding for the Improvement of the Framework of the Triangular Cooperation Peru-Korea to Latin American countries’.
The purpose of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) is to establish a framework between the two agencies for the identification and implementation of triangular cooperation projects between Peru and Korea for the benefit of Latin American countries, through the conduct of training courses in Peru on subjects to be identified in the future.
It also contributes with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS) of the United Nations, in particular the N°13 ‘Adopt urgent measures to combat climate change and its effects’; and the N° 17’ Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development.
According to the MdE, APCI will promote Triangular cooperation initiatives by sharing and transferring successful models, considering Peru as a provider of South-South Cooperation.
Both agencies wish to promote South-South cooperation as an important and beneficial modality for cooperation among developing countries in Latin America, and also agree to strive for optimal use of this modality in their respective joint cooperation programmes in the areas of Environment, Information and communication technologies (ICT), health, or other mutually agreed area.
