Peru Fin Min: GDP may have accelerated in July, August 2019

13:44 | Lima, Sep. 6.

Economy and Finance Minister Carlos Oliva on Friday informed Peruvian economy may have accelerated in July and August 2019; this strengthens the forecasts projecting GDP will increase 3% this year.



Likewise, he pointed out this result was underpinned by primary sectors' recovery, which registered a slowdown in the first half of 2019, affecting GDP performance.

"During the recent months, we have seen a recovery linked to the primary activity, such as mining, primary manufacturing, and fishing," Oliva added. 


Remarks were made during his presentation at Congress' Budget Commission.
