Peru

Named America’s Fastest Growing Economy by The Economist, Peru is rapidly gaining momentum in both the regional and international business environment. Private investment numbers have grown at a rate of nearly 20% per year, which, coupled with domestic consumption, is driving the economy forward at an accelerated pace. Though Peruvian economic policy has varied widely over past decades, the country has made huge strides towards stabilization and progress in the last 20 years, making it a perfect case study for Latin American emerging markets. Peru’s vast natural resources, including copper, zinc, oil, lead and gold have made the country significantly more attractive to foreign investors. Primary export countries include the US, China, Brazil, the EU, and Chile.
