Peru’s fast-growing economy is one of Latin America’s top performers, with 18 years of macroeconomic and financial stability to its credit. The world’s second biggest producer of silver, third biggest producer of copper and zinc, fourth biggest of tin and lead and the sixth biggest in gold has a well-established mining, equipment, technology and services (METS) sector.
A significant fiscal stabilisation fund offsets the country’s reliance on resources and the new administration of president Pedro Pablo Kuczynski has committed to higher public investment. The country has pursued numerous trade agreements in the past decade to encourage regional integration and stronger links across the Pacific. It offers emerging opportunities in oil and gas, water technology for mining, agriculture and urban supply; agricultural equipment and services, infrastructure and healthcare.
