Peru has undergone a renaissance in recent years, embracing a free-market economy and putting the days of hyperinflation behind it. But sluggish growth in 2014 is spurring the government into action.
Peru's big push
Michal Kaczmarski talks to Peru's finance minister, Luis Miguel Castilla, about the government's plans to pursue social inclusion, free trade agreements and the importance of maintaining an open market.
Investments in Peru's energy sector are helping to diversify the country's economy beyond its traditional commodities exports, and the push for greater diversification presents opportunities for investors, says Michael Deibert.
Alonso Segura, Peru's new finance minister, is facing a challenging first few months in the job, as the country's stellar economic performance of the past decade appears to be stalling. He tells fDi how a series of PPP projects and a more diversified economy means that the country's future is still bright.
