Pera noted that Peru climbed 6.3% in 2012 and the increase showed in January 2013 raised the forecast for 2013 from 5.6 to 6.5%, surpassing the global average growth rate of 3.6%. 

He also stated that Peru has one of the fastest economic growth rates in the world, placing among the most dynamic countries like China, which is expected to grow 8% this year.

Peru's contribution to world's economic growth would be as high as Italy's, if it continues growing 6% in the next decade, the economist said.
