This chapter analyses and provides recommendations to boost economic diversification and productivity in Peru. An analysis of Peru’s recent performance in productivity and economic diversification indicates a marked need to boost both in order to achieve a more inclusive development. Several opportunities emerge based on potential new products to export and recent experiences in both successful economic diversification and the promotion of start-ups and entrepreneurship. The chapter identifies policy focuses needed to seize these opportunities, including further innovation; small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) sustainability and reduced barriers to entrepreneurship; and increased regional integration. Better management of commodity-based revenues at the sub-national level and improvements in the taxation system are also relevant to Peru’s development goals. The chapter concludes with recommendations for the institutional framework to improve the design and implementation of Peru’s strategic development agenda.
