The department of Corporate Affairs of ComexPeru is in charge of promoting the participation of the Peruvian private sector on different international spaces where Peru takes part on. In this regard, the department gives technical support to the Chilean – Peruvian Business Council (CEChP), the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) and the Pacific Alliance Business Council (CEAP).

In the same way, Corporate Affairs works with the government and the ministries of Foreign Trade and Foreign Affairs, with the purpose of presenting the position of the private sector on different economic and trade-related matters. This dialogue helps both sectors to align their objectives and goals and, therefore, to reach a sound national position.
