"Inflation in Peru: How It Can Impact the Budget and Lifestyle of the Poorest"


Meanwhile, Jorge González Izquierdo, economist and former Minister of Labor and Social Promotion, who participated in the XXV International Forum EXPOGESTIÓN 2022, organized by GS1 Peru, indicated that the BCR's inflation target range for each period is to maintain it between 2% or 3%. However, by reaching 8% in May and with an estimate that it would reach 8.4% in June, it will continue to affect the food price index, therefore, it will impact the most disadvantaged sectors that have lower incomes and probably would be entering poverty levels.
