Peru is a country that has been through a great deal economically and politically. The past two decades have presented opportunities and many significant challenges. Peru is a country of two sectors: the coastline which is ambitious, economically growing and offers many opportunities, and the inland which includes the Andes mountains where rugged terrain exists. In this internal sector economic development has been a struggle. Transport infrastructure outside of Lima, Peru, and the Coastline cities is significantly below par and is a major constraint in moving the country forward. Large investments need to be made in infrastructure development. As such, Peru is changing but not as fast as the outside world. Modernization has been a challenge even though it telecommunication and financial sector has made significant strides in moving toward state of the art. Overall, Peru has been making incremental progress and has promise for its future development.
