Regaining strength on the global stage

For more than a decade, Peru distinguished itself as one of the fastest-growing economies in Latin America as it boasted an average annual gross domestic product growth of 6.1 percent from 2002 to 2013. However, from 2014 to 2017, its GDP growth slowed to an average of 3 percent, mainly because of a slump in global commodity prices, particularly copper, which is Peru's leading export commodity. Realizing it had to reduce the country's dependency on the mining industry, historically the main pillar of the economy, the Peruvian government sought investments into other key industries, such as manufacturing, energy, tourism, nontraditional agro-exports and textiles. Such products have started gaining a larger foothold in Japan.
