About us - structure and organisation

Representations of the European Union throughout the world (currently 141) are called Delegations of the European Union. The Delegation of Peru based in Lima was opened in March 1991. It officially represents the European Union in Peru and is also responsible for the relations with the Andean Community (link is external) (link is external), whose General Secretariat is also in the Peruvian capital.

The Delegation of the European Union in Peru benefits from diplomatic status similar to that of the countries accredited in this country and enjoys a regime of privileges and immunities, stipulated in an Agreement signed with the Peruvian Government in 1990.
The Delegation of the European Union in Peru is headed by the Head of the Delegation, who has the rank of Ambassador. Diego Mellado is Head of Delegation of the European Union in Peru since September 2017.



Welcome to the website of the European Union in Peru !

We appreciate your interest in the European Union in general and in its relations with Peru and the Andean Community in particular. We hope that you can find the information you need and the answers to your questions.

The Delegation of the European Union in Peru depends of the European External Action Service and is one of the 140 EU delegations and offices around the world.

This webpage aims to give you an overview of the role of the European Union in Peru. However, the main portal of the European Union is the best source for general information on the history of the EU or the role of its institutions.

This site focuses on the relations of the European Union with the Republic of Peru. Although relations between Europe and Peru are diverse and long-standing, relations between the EU as a block and Peru are more recent, especially in the areas of cooperation, trade and investment. It is a strong relationship that promises to expand in all sectors.
