Peruvian Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister Edgar Vasquez on Wednesday highlighted the recent signing of the Free Trade Agreement between Peru and the United Kingdom.
Trade with the UK
After the United Kingdom announced its exit from the European Union in 2017, the British nation, Peru, Colombia, and Ecuador agreed on establishing a trade accord in order to maintain the tariff preferences, which had resulted from the accord with the economic bloc.
So far, the Inca country relies on benefits to enter the UK market within the framework of the FTA with the EU.
That same year, Peru was the UK's second-largest fruit provider. Meanwhile, the British nation is the Inca country's sixth-main trade partner within the European Union bloc.
