Peru: Business confidence moderates in December

January 9, 2015

Business confidence came in at 53.1 points in December, according to the Central Bank’s business confidence indicator. The result was a moderation compared to 55.3 points registered in November, which had marked the highest level in nine months. However, business confidence is still above the 50-point threshold that separates optimistic from pessimistic territory.

Businesses expressed less positive sentiment regarding the outlook for the economy as a whole in the next three months, although the short-term outlook for their particular sectors was relatively unchanged. Expectations for product demand, new hiring, and the situation of their particular business weakened in December. In contrast, businesses’ expectations for the economy in the coming 12 months improved slightly.

LatinFocus Consensus Forecast panelists expect fixed investment to grow 3.8% this year, which is unchanged from last month’s forecast. For 2016, panel participants see investment growing 5.2%.
