The Minister of Foreign Trade and Tourism in Peru, Roberto Sánchez, has announced that the country's exports are projected to reach a new record high of $66.5 billion by the end of 2022. This projection is based on the growth of Peruvian shipments to the world in the first five months of the year, as well as the start of the Quellaveco copper project and the strong performance of agricultural exports, which are expected to exceed $9.6 billion. The Minister attributes this growth to the government's trade policy focused on opening markets and improving the competitiveness of exports, as well as President Pedro Castillo's commitment to the foreign trade sector. He also noted that while the price of copper, Peru's main export, has fallen in recent months, other products such as table grapes, avocados, fish products, textiles, and manufactured goods are also performing well.
