Why Peru?

  • One of the fastest growing economies in Latin America, with an average annual growth rate of 5 percent per year between 2005 and 2017.
  • Average age of private transport vehicles is 15.5 years and 22.5 years for public transport vehicles.
  • Peru’s stability has made it historically the leader in the region for international business and tourism.
  • U.S. Free trade agreement with Peru eliminated tariffs on many goods and it is accelerating the customs clearance process for U.S. imports, and strengthening the protection on intellectual property rights.
