Peru's trade surplus totalled US$65 million last May, Peru's Central Reserve Bank (BCR) revealed on Wednesday.
The amount is higher than the $18 million reached last April.
Exports grew by 6.2% from the same period the year before, thanks to an increase in sales of traditional products (11%).
Compared to April, exports expanded by 2.7% due to greater shipments of both traditional and non-traditional products, having expanded by 1.3% and 6.4%, respectively.
US$2.826 billion in revenue was reached in the said period.
Last May, imports totalled US$2.760 billion from acquisition of supplies (US$1.166 billion), capital assets (US$919 million) and consumer goods (US$657 million), BCR reported.
