The Vice Minister of Economy, Hugo Perea, indicated that private investment would grow 5.2% this year, thanks not only to mining investment -which will grow by 19.4%- but also by non-mining investment that would achieve an advance of 2.7%, according to information from Gestión.
The Vice Minister added that non-mining private investment includes projects in infrastructure, hydrocarbons, retail, and real estate.
“The good dynamism of economic activity in the first half of 2018 ensures the growth of 4% for the current year, which will allow Peru to continue leading compared to the rest of the countries in the region,” he said in the III Forum “Dialogues for Development 2018″, organized by Confiep.
