PERU IS THE BOOMING STAR IN LATIN AMERICA
The richness of the Peruvian culture is not limited only to the Inca heritage and to being one of the most bio-diverse countries on the planet, but also to the migration waves over the last 500 years that have brought their own folklore, traditions and cuisine, bringing about a new Peruvian identity.
The Peruvian economy has been making impressive strides in recent years, jumping from US$ 67 billion in 2004 to a GDP of US$ 203 billion in 2014. It is an astonishing accomplishment. Exports of Peruvian products expanded from US$ 13 billion in 2004 to US$ 38.2 billion in 2014. Private investment is the economy´s growth engine and has been increasing due to the modern framework provided by the Peruvian Government, among other factors. Private investment increased 4+ times from US$ 9.20 billion in 2004 to US$ 41.2 billion in 2014, public investments have increased from US$ 1.92 billion in 2004 to US$ 11.2 billion in 2014.
