Peruvian exports of traditional products amounted to US$4.532 billion in November 2021, up 62.7% compared to the same month in 2019, the Central Reserve Bank (BCR)
reported on Sunday.
This increase was mainly driven by higher prices (65.5%), particularly of fish meal, coffee, minerals, and hydrocarbons.
On the other hand, traditional exports saw an increase of 53.3%, compared to November 2020.
Thus, foreign sales of traditional products reached a value of US$42.060 billion between January and November 2021, a rise of 37.8% over the same period in 2019 and of 60.1% compared to the same period in 2020.
In November 2021, mining exports stood out at US$3.781 billion, which maintained the positive growth of previous months, by climbing 62.4% compared to November 2019 and 37.4% compared to the same month last year.
