Peruvian Central Reserve Bank (BCR) Governor Julio Velarde on Friday revised his 2018 private investment growth forecast upwards to 6.5%.

This way, Velarde upgraded the previous 5.3% estimate during the presentation of BCR's December 2017 Inflation Report. 

The BCR head also projected a 12.5% rise in public investment for 2018. 

Velarde expects both public and private investment to boost domestic demand by 4.4% in the coming year.
