Peru Business Confidence October 2020

Peru: Business sentiment turns optimistic in October for first time since January

Business confidence rose to 50.2 in October, up from September’s 46.6 and marking the sixth consecutive monthly increase as firms reacted positively to the continued easing of restrictions on activity. As such, the indicator came in marginally above the 50-point threshold that separates pessimism from optimism among firms, returning to positive territory for the first time since January.

The uptick in firms’ expectations was broad-based in October, with views regarding their sector turning positive, and perceptions of future demand for their products and the company’s financial situation all becoming more optimistic. However, despite improving, views on the labor market and company investment remained in pessimistic territory.
