The president of Peru’s Confederation of Private Business Institutions (CONFIEP), Ricardo Briceño, told the local media that if businessmen and the government agree to work in “a shared agenda,” then it will be possible to promote more investments in Peru and to create more jobs.

"We will grow as long as business and government leaders agree on a common agenda to boost foreign investment, employment, production and exports," he said.

However, Briceño stressed, during a dialogue with CPN Radio, that the effects of the global financial crisis should be mitigated, in order to generate higher confidence among entrepreneurs and investors.
