inPERU to cement Peru's position as investment destination

12:23 | Lima, Sep. 7.

inPERU's coming road show will boost the Inca country's position as one of the best investment destinations among emerging countries, the association's Chairman Francis Stenning affirmed.

Unlike other emerging nations —he said— Peru registers sustained growth rates and high levels of fiscal responsibility amid a global context marked by the trade war between the United States and China, as well as the fall in mineral prices.

Although the trade war has reduced investment flows, severely impacting emerging countries such as Turkey and Argentina, Peru is one of the least affected. 

"For that reason, the road show will provide the opportunity to place value on our economy's aspects, and offer investment alternatives unrelated to the mining sector (…)," Stenning expressed. 

The public sector —which currently shows signs of further stability— will also play an important role during the event. 

"In contrast to the past, the current Government has a clear vision of its goals and follows an agenda committed to economic development," inPERU's chairman said. 

"Delivering such message to the market is essential," he added.
