Peru’s exports rose 8.9% year-on-year to USD 43.458bn between January and November 2018, the Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism Edgar Vazquez said quoted by Andina news agency.

This positive performance was driven by both traditional and non- traditional shipments which increased by 7% y/y and 14.2% y/y, respectively.

The Ministry highlighted that non-traditional exports hit a record high during the period of reference thanks to stronger sales of squid (+67% y/y), blueberries (+47% y/y), grapes (+40% y/y), etc. On the hand, traditional exports growth was mainly underpinned by natural gas (45% y/y) and zinc sales (14.2% y/y).
