Peru Exports in 1st Half 2015 Show 24% Drop

Peru’s export income for the first six months of 2015 came to a total of $18.9 billion, with a total of $2.7 billion in July alone.

According to the Central Bank (BCR), traditional goods (minerals, fish, and oil and gas) continued to lead the export market. In July, traditional exports totaled $ 1.86 billion, with non-traditional goods generating an income of $850 million.

The results show a 24% drop compared to the same period in 2014, mainly due to the fall in commodities prices.

Non-traditional products, however, showed a slight increase of 4% over the same period.
