Our regional operations were growing larger. With the inauguration of offices in Bolivia and Uruguay, we solidified our services in both countries, and strengthened our presence in the energy industry.​

Inauguration of the Lima, Peru office

The energy industry, including the mining sector, was playing an important role in strengthening economic growth in Peru. Practia helped the local industry with this expansion, and opened a national office.

#PRACTIAGLOBAL

We grew. We matured. Sometimes we were right, and sometimes we were wrong. We worked alongside our clients through many regional changes. We unified our brand and took on our new role as a global company.

Hagámoslo juntos.
