Spain Prime Minister: Peru, serious country offering stable economic environment

Peru is a serious country that offers a stable environment and respects requirements of legal certainty, which lead to generating investor confidence, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy affirmed on Wednesday.

Likewise, Mr. Rajoy highlighted Spain’s status as the main investor in the Peruvian territory.

According to the Head of Government, Spanish entrepreneurial presence in Peru has diversified in the last 5 years. As an example, there are currently almost 400 enterprises operating in different Peruvian regions, he affirmed.

The Prime Minister went on to add a growing number of Spanish small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have started to settle down in Peru. According to his point of view, the move constitutes “good news” for both countries.

“Peru is a country that has achieved outstanding macroeconomic figures […],” Mr. Rajoy told in a press conference held at the Moncloa Palace, where he welcomed Peruvian President Ollanta Humala, who paid an official visit to the country.

“It is a country on the rise, and we are sincerely glad therefore,” he expressed.

“Peru moves forward and Spain […] feels it,” he added.
