Peru’s Minister of Economy and Finance Luis Castilla noted that the Government has officially re-launched its competitiveness agenda and expects to grow at rates of six percent in the next years with a sustained increase in productivity.
In order to achieve this goal, the Peruvian government has established four basic strategies in the framework of the National Council of Competitiveness, said the minister after a meeting with Peruvian President Ollanta Humala and renowned American economist Michael Porter late Wednesday.
Minister Castilla said that the re-launching of the competitiveness agenda seeks to achieve a continuous growth of the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
The strategies includes a sustained increase in productivity, making the State serve its citizens and enterprises, helping the regions to achieve territorial development and strengthening competitiveness by improving the institutional framework.
Moreover, Minister Castilla said that it is highly important to carry out a regional competitiveness survey among other initiatives which are still being analyzed by the government.
