Draw the bisector of the angle A perpendicular to line BC.
D is the center of the circle and CD is equal to the radius. The diameter of the circle above is 4. So, CD is 2.

Triangle CDE is a 30-60-90 degree triangle and angle DCE is 30.
Since, CD is 2 (the hypotenuse of the triangle CDE), DE is 1 and CE is $$\sqrt{3}$$. Why?
Therefore, BC is $$2\sqrt{3}$$ and the perimeter of the triangle ABC is
$$3 × 2\sqrt{3} = 6\sqrt{3}$$
