These centers are the fruits of cooperative effort between Peru’s public and private sectors and the ADOC Secretariat in Chinese Taipei.

The first phase of the ADOC project was launched in August 2004 and the second phase ADOC project was proposed during the 2007 APEC Economic Leaders’ Meeting and launched in 2009 by Chinese Taipei. The training provided by ADOC includes not only ICT basic skills but also e-commerce and e-trading practices in order to empower the trainees with the ability to generate income and to improve quality of life.
