The volume of non-traditional Peruvian exports grew by 6.2% last September, for a second consecutive month.
According to the National Institute of Statistics and Informatics (INEI), the result was driven by the favorable performance of the agricultural (17.3%), chemical (11.1%), and textile (4.7%) sectors.
Within this framework, greater placements of blueberries (19.5%) and avocados (76.8%) stood out, on the fruit end of things.
It is worth highlighting the positive performance of the non-traditional agricultural sector (4.6%) explained by higher shipments of avocados, grapes, blueberries, tangerines, artichokes, canned asparagus, and mangoes. Last September, traditional exports volume was reduced by 38.2%, compared to the same month of the previous year.
