3. Tourism: Thanks to its amazing archaeological monuments, its large biodiversity and internationally renowned gastronomy, Peru has become a world-class tourism destination.

4. Textile: The long Peruvian textile tradition has favored professionalization and training of qualified workforce.

5. Petrochemical: Peru has abundant hydrocarbon wealth (oil and gas) in diverse areas of its territory, mainly the continental shelf and the rainforest.

6. Energy: Peru is a country with a high and interesting availability of water resources and natural gas. This has made possible to meet the local energy demand.

7. Mining: Peru is one of the most attractive destinations for mining investment due to the high level of its reserves and the legal framework that promotes private investment.

8. Infrastructure: The growing investments in transport infrastructure carried out during the last decade have boosted the integration towards new markets.

9. Construction: The high housing deficit, the population’s increasing purchasing power and a better access to credit are the factors that dynamize this sector.

10. Services: The local market's growth and dynamism, the availability of top-class labor and other factors make Peru an excellent alternative for investment in this sector.
