13:33 | Lima, Jan. 14.

Peruvian traditional exports totaled US$32.220 billion between January and November 2018, thus increasing 6.9% over the same period last year, Central Reserve Bank (BCR) informed.

According to BCR, this outcome was underpinned by higher prices of fish flour, copper, gold, zinc, and petroleum derivatives. 

Likewise, mining exports reached US$26.022 billion in the 11-month period, a 5.5% rise compared to the same term in 2017. Said result was driven by higher prices of minerals. 

Furthermore, sales of petroleum and natural gas amounted to US$3.681 billion between January and November 2018, thus expanding 24.5% over the same period the previous year. 

Additionally, fishery exports totaled US$1.847 billion in the aforementioned term, a 3.8% expansion compared to the same period in 2017, mainly underpinned by higher prices of fish flour.
