Peru’s Mining Sector: Political and Commercial Environment for Investors
One of the world’s top producers of base and precious metals, Peru offers significant potential for mining sector investors. The government of President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski has sought to improve the environment for foreign investors in Peru. The country’s legal framework has become more investor-friendly and FDI into Peru has grown steadily over the last few years. However, significant regulatory challenges remain, in particular with regard to employment law, local permits and social conflicts. The country has also been gripped by the ongoing political crisis that arose from the Odebrecht bribery case. The scandal has engulfed top-level figures in Peru’s political arena including the president and the First Lady. The new study from Horizon analyzes key aspects of Peru’s mining governance and investment environment. It assesses the role and influence of key government institutions for foreign investors and analyzes ways they can navigate the country’s complex political, economic and regulatory environment.
