Why Doing Business in Peru? Among the remains of ancient Incan civilisations lie an abundance of resources such as metals, minerals, and oil which Peru is increasingly using to improve its economic position. Since 2002, the Peruvian economy has grown substantially, combining low inflation and a balanced exchange rate to allure investors and open trade. As one of the largest countries in South America, Peru’s plentiful natural resources and encouraging business climate have continued to draw in a variety of organisations and companies. Successfully doing business in Peru, however, requires a thorough understanding of Peruvian business culture and practices.
