Peru: Consumer confidence cools slightly in January
January 27, 2017
In January, the consumer confidence indicator published by APOYO Consultoría (AC) declined to 53 points (December: 54 points). Nonetheless, the index remained above the 50-point threshold that separates optimistic from pessimistic territory.
According to the survey, consumer sentiment was only marginally lower than in December. Respondents were less upbeat about both their current financial situation and the latest price developments, with higher prices for certain food items and energy products weighing on the household budget.
