4global recently supported the Peruvian Government, the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) and the organisers of Lima 2019 to deliver a successful Pan and Parapan American Games.
4global was the lead contractor managing the infrastructure, operational and programme management input as part of the Government to Government (G2G) agreement between the UK and Peruvian Government to provide technical support to Peru in relation to the delivery of the 2019 Pan Am and Parapan Games that took place in Lima.
Alongside the DIT, 4global worked in partnership with two other leading UK organisations including international design and engineering firm Arup and construction company Mace to play a vital role in the UK’s first G2G partnering model, aiding the delivery of a major sporting event for a host city.
According to the DIT and as a result of the success of the model, Lima 2019 delivered a number of significant results and crucially, a valuable, reusable G2G model that will only further establish and strengthen trade relationships. This is particularly important with the UK being so competitive in several areas including major sports events, urban redevelopment, privatisation and SOE reform.
Lima 2019 also provided export sales from the UK of £100 million, with at least 10 major contracts won by British organisations; it substantially increased the UK’s influence and access in Peru and was an important enhancement of the London 2012 Legacy.
On Lima 2019 and 4global’s involvement, Eloy Mazon, CEO of 4global Consulting said: “The Games in Peru were a roaring success and we were delighted to play such a significant role. It was also an honour for us to be involved with such a ground-breaking moment for the UK as we as a nation look to take advantage of the G2G model, something which has proved a success for other countries and will undoubtedly support UK government and businesses ongoing.”
