Peru's government is finishing work on a national strategy aimed at leading the recovering in the country's exports and taking advantage of improved economic prospects of the major global markets, it was announced Wednesday.
According to the Peruvian Exporters' Association (Adex) President, Eduardo Amorrortu, this initiative is gathering the proposals and suggestions of the country's private sector.

"There is a shared interest in recovering the rate of growth of Peru's foreign trade and reaching new international markets," he told El Peruano official daily, while noting the plan is set to be progressively implemented through the work of the Executive branch.

Opening up new markets is one of the plan's ultimate goals, including deepening the coordination and dialogue between both the country's public and private sectors.

Moreover, Amorrortu noted this platform of dialog is expected to consider the new free trade agreements (FTAs). "There are not a magic key to export more, but they allow the nation the development of its products by getting access to new markets," he said.

In this regard, Adex's top official pointed out that, at the end of the last year, the Ollanta Humala's administration has intensified economic relations through the elimination of double taxation as part of its efforts to boost trade.
