It is expected that Peru will realize its full economic potential after reducing its infrastructure gap and bottlenecks. In the last decade, Peru has begun to take the necessary measures to improve its infrastructure in transport facilities, electricity, water and communications in order to promote new investments which will contribute to the development of the productive sectors of the country.
Peru is focused on promoting the development of the infrastructure for its positive impact in the GDP through the production of transport services, the supply of water, sanitation and electricity, health, telecommunications, among others. Infrastructure investments generate positive externalities within the country that will accelerate long-term growth. Additionally, the investment in infrastructure indirectly influence the productivity of the companies and all the supply chain in the economy so that all productive factors increase their productivity. In this sense, companies will benefit from the increase of competitiveness by the reduction of costs, increase of economies of scale, efficiency on supply chain, extension of storage and facility of distribution. Not only companies will benefit but also the population will increase their quality of life by covering their basic needs and accessing better public services, necessary to get out of poverty permanently. Further, the developing of infrastructure has a positive impact on human capital and its competitiveness in the medium and long term.
