Regional development in Peru : trends and challenges

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Unlike the Chinese case, Peru does not have significant legislative restrictions on the flow of labor within its borders. In fact, based on recent data from population censuses, this chapter shows that internal migration flows follow clear signals of better economic opportunities and access to public services, contributing to the economic and social efficiency of the country. The main problems to address in the Peruvian case, in order to avoid any risk of falling into a middle-income trap, are the low level and insufficient quality of investments in physical and human capital nationwide
