CANBERRA: Peru’s total exports to Australia reached US$178.708 million between January and October 2017, the Andean country’s Exports and Tourism Promotion Board (PromPeru) reported Friday.
This result was mainly underpinned by greater sales of traditional products, which totaled US$136.722 million in the first 10 months of 2017. It must be noted said shipments accounted for 76.5% of Peru’s total exports to the Oceania country.
On the other hand, non-traditional exports amounted to US$41.986 million in the analyzed period, thus accounting for 23.5% of total sales to Australia. In this sense, non-traditional shipments to said nation expanded 4.95% in the January-October period, whereas traditional exports slid 11.36%. According to PromPeru, the total value of Peruvian exports to Australia decreased 7.98% from US$194.208 million (Jan-Oct 2016) to US$178.708 million (Jan-Oct 2017).
