The international private sector gave its position during the roadshow "Peru Outlook & Investment Opportunities Conference" held in Washington D.C., United States.
Good news! Showing the world Peru's economic potential, as well as promoting the country as an attractive destination for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI), were two of the objectives achieved by the Commission for the Promotion of Peruvian Exports and Tourism (PROMPERU), during the roadshow "Peru Outlook & Investment Opportunities Conference 2023", held in the city of Washington DC, United States, on April 11.
During the event, where the presence of the country brand was also promoted, the international private sector, represented by the International Finance Corporation, the investment bank Morgan Stanley and the risk rating agency S&P Global Ratings, rated our country as an attractive investment alternative in the region, due to its favorable conditions for the arrival of foreign capital and a wide range of opportunities arising from its outstanding geographic, cultural and natural resource diversity.
Recently, PROMPERU's FDI promotion actions have focused mostly on the Latin American market in order to reactivate the economy. For this year, it was decided to increase this range in tactical activities, called "Roadshows" to North America and Europe, especially in countries where companies that have had the experience of investing in our country are located, and with this we can also shore up the confidence of foreign investors. During the roadshow "Peru Outlook & Investment Opportunities Conference 2023", Peru also sought to strengthen its relations with important representatives of foreign governments, U.S. businessmen, potential investors and international media, to whom Peru presented itself as a globally integrated economy with an important network of trade agreements covering more than 54 countries.
The event was attended by international investors, executives with decision-making power, representatives of governments and international organizations, as well as key economic agents from financial and capital markets, with the participation of Julio Velarde, president of the Central Reserve Bank of Peru (BCRP), as keynote speaker. In addition, multisectoral opportunities to invest in our country were presented, creating and strengthening ties with contacts of interest in FDI.
According to the latest official figures from INEI, the Peruvian economy's GDP expanded 2.7% last year with respect to 2021, while the latest inflation report prepared by the BCRP last December, estimates that by 2023 and 2024 an expansion of 3.0% will be achieved each year, with domestic demand as the main component of growth.
