Peru's poverty rate
fell more than 21 percentage points between 2007 and 2018, with an average GDP growth rate of over 5%, the Central Reserve Bank (BCR) reported on Friday.
"Ideally, we would like to see higher growth rates, in such a way that poverty can be reduced at a faster rate," he added.
"For instance, the electricity production indicator is believed to have grown 6.3% in March, higher than February (5.6%) and January (5.7%) rates," he explained.
According to INEI, the electricity sub-sector grew 5.63% in February this year, compared to the same month in 2018, thus posting growth for fourth month in a row.
