Apurimac, the second poorest region in Peru - with poverty levels of 56% and extreme poverty levels of 25% - will soon be one of the largest mining districts in the country. The region is sparsely populated and has significant needs, as basic services coverage is very limited. In this scenario, unfulfilled expectations can become a source of discontent that can potentially lead to conflict.
Peru has become one of the best investment destinations for foreign investors in Latin America. Although the outlook for the country’s economy is improving, Peru’s over-reliance on mining means the it is very susceptible to external factors such as a global economic slowdown or US rate hike.
Analysts at BBH, a New York-based investment house, see many reasons to be optimistic about Peru’s economy following the first round of elections which took place in the Latin American country this week.
