The Peruvian economy has the lowest country risk level in the region,
, the Economy and Finance Ministry (MEF) affirmed Thursday.
To date, Peru's country risk
has reached —in average— 108 basis points (bps), while other economies —such as Brazil (245 bps), Mexico (208 bps), Colombia (188 bps), and Chile (135 bps)— have registered higher figures.
These strengths have also helped Peru maintain its credit rating.
These projections are based on the recovery of primary sectors (mining
, fishing, and primary manufacturing spheres) after the dissipation of temporary shocks in the first half of 2019, as well as domestic demand recovery.
