The country is engaged in consolidating democratic institutions and pursuing moderate policies aimed at supporting private initiative in the economy (particularly with respect to the extraction of natural resources).
The healthy dynamic of domestic demand, together with the positive trend of the commercial and construction sectors are the areas of the Peruvian economy that are experiencing growth rates among the highest in South America. Even if some uncertainties around global market trends remain, the sound position of public finances enables the country to adopt tax measures aimed at supporting the economy.
