The growth agenda of Peru’s newly elected president, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, will encourage privately led investment opportunities across many sectors, with key opportunities in infrastructure, real estate and mining. Market-driven policies including tax breaks for small businesses, cuts in consumption taxes, reduction of the national sales tax from 18 to 15 percent, and removal of regulations. These measures are expected to stimulate the formal economy and increase government revenues, bolstering consumption and investment. Other key proposals include improving agriculture and increasing the fiscal deficit in 2017 to improve access to health care and education. This increased government spending will help attract investment into the country.
