President Martin Vizcarra on Monday affirmed Peru will continue the frontal fight against corruption in 2019, adding the economy will expand more than 4%
According to the Head of State, 2018 was a year full of confrontations since there was a direct fight against said scourge.
However, the foundations to continue tackling this problem have been laid.
The statesman also pointed out that in 2017 —a year without confrontations— the Inca country only grew 2%, while this year the nation met the goal of expanding 4% amid a frontal fight against corruption and the strengthening of institutions
In this sense, he stated his administration's aim is to achieve GDP growth
between 4.2% and 4.5% next year.
Furthermore, President Vizcarra believes it is important that all State branches and institutions contribute to said combat and to removing public sector's bad elements.
