Economy and Finance Minister Maria Antonieta Alva
has highlighted the successful issuance of Peruvian global bonds worth more than S/10.2 billion (about US$3.017 billion), which confirms the strength of the Inca country's economy.
"We are very pleased with the operation. The support for Peru was strong since the demand reached S/22 billion (around US$6.508 billion), far outstripping the supply," she told Andina news agency.
According to the government official, historical rates were recorded as part of this process.
Alva stressed that the operation was carried out in full accordance with the Law on Indebtedness and the Multiannual Macroeconomic Framework.
For his part, Public Treasury Director General at Peru's Economy and Finance Ministry Jose Olivares explained that around 60% of the placed bonds
were oriented towards debt management.
"This means they will be destined to refinance the old debt at a lower financial cost. By doing so, we will be reshaping our debt with lower interest rates in order to generate savings," he added.
