2022 was a volatile year for the entire world but especially for Peru. After having won the presidential elections by a narrow margin, the left-wing then-president, Pedro Castillo, was impeached and arrested. While Dina Boluarte, the former Vice-President, took power and pledged to bring forward elections, protests expanded throughout the country. The current turmoil is imperiling mineral production, one of Peru's leading industries.
Despite challenges, Peru has a strong pipeline of new projects with an overall investment value of US$53.7 billion, a robust equipment and service ecosystem, and junior and producing companies leveraging Peru's copper endowment aligned with the world's goals toward a more sustainable future. Everybody has strong fundamentals to be bullish on Peru.
