Foreign Trade and Tourism Minister Edgar Vasquez on Thursday projected that Peruvian exports will reach US$48 billion this year and US$50 billion in 2021.
Likewise, the government official commented that this year's progress may be underpinned by higher international prices of non-traditional products
and the discovery of new target markets.
Vasquez indicated that this projection takes into account the possible effects of Coronavirus, although in a conservative scenario.
He expressed hope for the new Congress members to take up duties "so that both the agreement with the United Kingdom and the CPTPP are able to pass the corresponding procedures in order to be ratified."
