Peru's Central Reserve Bank (BCR) on Friday maintained its economic growth forecast for 2018 at 4%
The financial entity says this expansion would be underpinned by a pickup in non-primary GDP (4.1%).
According to BCR Governor Julio Velarde, the sectors that expanded the most would be fisheries
(39.8%), primary manufacture
(7.0%), and construction
Velarde explained that Peru's GDP growth next year would be underpinned by an increase in mining-hydrocarbon
and construction sectors.
