Peruvian exports totaled US$44.354 billion between January and November 2018, thus increasing 8.9% over the same term the previous year, Central Reserve Bank (BCR) informed.

This outcome was underpinned by price increase in traditional products (9.5%) and greater volumes of non-traditional shipments (12.7%). 

Farming exports reached US$5.18 billion in the 11-month period, a 13.8% rise compared to the same term in 2017. 

Shipments of grapes, blueberries, and avocados stood out.

Likewise, fishery (+13.2%), mining (+5.6%), hydrocarbon (+24.5%), and manufacturing (+10%) exports registered expansions. 

Higher sales of giant squid, as well as fish oil and flour stood out (fishery sector), followed by copper and zinc (mining), crude petroleum and its derivatives (hydrocarbon), as well as paper, chemicals, and textiles (manufacturing).
