Peru’s trade balance published a US$ 433 million surplus in August, preserving the positive performance observed for 14 consecutive months, since July 2016. Year-to-date, Peru accumulates a US$ 3.151 billion trade surplus, said the nation’s reserve bank.
In August, Peruvian exports amounted to US$ 3.923 billion, a 20.4% increase compared to August 2016. The exports growth was mainly due to the increase in costs (+13.7%) and volume (+5.8%) of the exported items.
Meanwhile, imports amounted to US$ 3.490 billion in August, 10.1% greater than in August 2016, due to the greater purchases of durable consumer goods, inputs, and capital products.
