This year’s Christmas season sales may reach a turnover of US $621 million, which would mean an increase of 3 to 5% compared to last year’s campaign figures, according to the Lima Chamber of Commerce (CCL).

The Economic and Business Development Committee (IEDEP) of the CCL said that the good performance of the Christmas campaign would confirm the recovery of the economic activity in Peru.

The CCL explained that this new tendency can be due to the growth of the private consumption and the higher demand of economic resources.

They also said that this improvement is likely to be boosted by the special Christmas bonus that the Government will pay to all public sector employees.
