Fiscal Balance in Peru

Peru - Fiscal Balance

President Martin Vizcarra swore in Salvador del Solar as his new prime minister on 11 March, following the resignation of César Villanueva, likely due to Vizcarra’s languishing approval ratings. Analysts expect the move to be followed by a further shake-up in the cabinet. Political turbulence comes against a backdrop of solid economic data. GDP growth jumped in Q4 2018, powered by a notable turnaround in external demand and a significant acceleration in domestic demand. The improved economic performance in 2018 translated into a noteworthy increase in tax revenue in the year, which contributed to a reduction in the fiscal deficit. Moreover, the economy appears to have remained on a solid footing at the outset of 2019: In January, tax revenue continued to rise robustly and credit growth remained buoyant. Moreover, consumer confidence rebounded strongly in February, and business confidence was upbeat in January-February.
