Peru: Trade surplus stood at US$582 million in June 2017Tuesday, August 08, 2017 > 11:57:47
Peru's trade balance posted a US$582-million surplus in June 2017, thus seeing positive results for the twelfth straight month, the Central Reserve Bank (BCR) informed.
In this context, the issuing entity underlined June's result is the second highest figure registered so far this year.
Likewise, the BCR noted Peruvian exports grew 35% (+US$946 million) in June this year from the same month in 2016.
Growth was underpinned by greater sales of traditional products (+44.2%), mainly fishmeal and copper.
The positive outcome was also driven by non-traditional exports, which experienced a 13.1% increase due to higher farming and fishing shipments.
On the other hand, June imports expanded 6.2% (+US$178 million), mainly boosted by increased purchases of durable and non-durable consumer goods.
It must be noted Inca exports grew 27.8% in the first semester of 2017.
