Peru Business Confidence May 2020

Peru: Business sentiment ticks up in May, remains deeply pessimistic

Business confidence edged up in May to 14.0, pulling away from April’s record low of 9.1 points as firms reacted to the initiation of easing of lockdown measures in the month. However, the indicator still came in well below the 50-point threshold that separates pessimism from optimism.

May’s uptick reflected a broad-based improvement in firms’ views. Expectations on the general economic situation in the next 3 and 12 months were less pessimistic, as were the views on the conditions of their sector in the same time periods. Furthermore, firms’ outlook on their company’s financial situation and on demand for their company’s products also ticked up marginally. However, most subindices stayed significantly below their values from March, reflecting the severity of the situation looking ahead.
