In a context of economic slowdown, the Government has launched a series of strategies focused on reactivation. These measures, reflected in a recent emergency decree, aim to strengthen various sectors, boost investment and generate employment. With a comprehensive approach, the aim is not only to recover growth levels prior to the crisis, but also to lay the foundations for long-term sustainable development.

Among the actions announced, initiatives to improve infrastructure, tax incentives for companies, support for entrepreneurs and measures to promote domestic consumption stand out.

Why did the Government take these measures to reactivate the economy?

The actions implemented originate in a scenario in which the Peruvian economy faces several risks that could impact the development of the aforementioned activity, including:

  • Continuation of high levels of inflation.
  • Increase in monetary policy interest rates.
  • Slowdown of the Chinese economy that could result in a reduction in demand for raw materials, which includes copper from emerging nations such as Peru.
  • Environment of geopolitical tensions.

What are the 10 measures for economic reactivation?

The emergency decree that proposes the following measures will be in force until December 31, 2024, except article 4, which applies until June 30, 2024.
