The value of Peru's non-traditional exports to Spain totaled US$172 million in the first four-month period of 2017, the country's Exports and Tourism Promotion Board (PromPeru) informed.
The result meant a 16.7% increase compared to the amount (US$147 million) registered in the same period last year.
According to PromPeru data, the value of traditional shipments to the European country increased 71% in the analyzed period from the same term in 2016.
In this sense, traditional exports value climbed from US$205 million (January-April 2016) to US$350 million (as at April 2017).
During the first four months of 2017, the total value of Peru's sales to Spain expanded 48.2%.
Growth was mainly driven by the good performance of traditional exports.
The total value of Peru's exports to Spain grew 11.8% last year, thus climbing from US$1.092 billion (2015) to US$1.221 billion (2016).
Positive results were underpinned by greater non-traditional shipments (US$540 million; +22.9%).
In addition, the Andean Head of State will hold a meeting with King Felipe VI
at Zarzuela Palace.
