Permanent Representative of Peru to the United Nations (UN) Jose Manuel Rodriguez Cuadros on Saturday affirmed that President Pedro Castillo's visit to the United States will reaffirm confidence in the country's future and its economic reactivation.

In this sense, the diplomat explained that the Head of State will hold meetings with representatives of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), International Monetary Fund (IMF), and World Bank.

Likewise, the ambassador pointed out that Peru's economic growth indicators for 2021 and 2022 are positive and the highest in South America.

According to ECLAC, Peruvian growth rate would reach 10.8%, while the IDB indicated it would stand at 11.1%, and the Ministry of Economy-Finance estimated it would be 10.5%.

"(…) I think it is evident that it (the speech) will emphasize aspects concerning the problems faced by all Peruvians, which are related to economic development, competitiveness, fight against poverty, solution to specific problems, such as access to water and nutrition," he told RPP radio and TV station.

Rodriguez Cuadros said the UN agenda matches that of Peru based on social change with macroeconomic stability.
