It isn’t the first movement of Google to improve communication with the Peruvians, the first Google’s office in the country was launched by 2010. “We are committed to the development of Peru and this inauguration confirms our presence in the country. This has great digital potential and our main objective is to support the training of people and accompany the growth of local businesses whether large or small,” said the Google’s General Manager, Julian Coulter, at the opening according to the Peruvian newspaper La Prensa.

The main project of the company for the country is “Create in your language”, a platform to stimulate digital skills and offer knowledge about development for Peruvian women. The project was created in collaboration with a non-profit organization, Laboratoria, and has the support of Google News Initiative.

With this new launching, Latin America counts now with 6 Google’s offices in the region.
