Description

This paper presents the staff report for Peru’s 2008 Article IV Consultation, Fourth Review and Inflation Consultation under the Stand-By Arrangement and request for waiver of applicability of performance criteria. Peru has been liberalizing external trade through tariff reductions in past years and has also been seeking enhanced market access through new bilateral agreements. There has been progress in simplifying administrative procedures and in enacting legislation to reduce labor market informality. The economy has been moderately affected by the global financial crisis.
