Peru is one of the healthiest economies in Latin America together with Chile, Colombia and Mexico. This group of countries issued the Declaración de Lima, a statement of intent to establish the Pacific Alliance, with the initial goal of further free trade with “a clear orientation toward Asia”, and economic integration.
