PPK's Peru: Financial Sector

Key Points

  • After Peru’s economic growth dropped in 2015, PPK and his team have emphasized improving the economy and returning it to a target growth rate of at least 5 percent through creating policies that formalize the economy and promote sustainable growth, investment.
     
  • PPK wants to implement several tax reform policies that aim to lower taxes, simplify the laws, and improve collection rates, including gradually reducing the IGV from 18 percent to 15 percent by 2019 and providing tax incentive to small and medium businesses.
     
  • PPK will likely have to water down his economic policy proposals, especially tax reforms, to garner approval from an opposition controlled Congress.
