Peru: Mango exports to China up 628%

According to the National Customs and Tax Administration (Sunat), this year, Peruvian mango exports to China increased by 628%.

The Sunat noted that bilateral trade with China was increasing, led by agricultural exports.

"There are other agricultural products that our country produces that are in high demand in China, such as asparagus, which had a 306% increase in air shipments," they stated.

They also indicated that, in the coming months, there could be an increase in exports of mandarins, blueberries, and custard apples, which also have a high demand in the Chinese market.

The Sunat highlighted the recent signing of 18 agreements to optimize the FTA with China, and the implementation of direct flights between the two countries

"The ongoing simplification and modernization of export procedures by the Peruvian Customs has made us an attractive trading partner for this world power," they said.

Rafael Garcia, the National Customs Superintendent Deputy, underlined the commitment of the Sunat to continue streamlining customs procedures at the ceremony celebrating the first air shipment of Peruvian products from Lima to Shanghai made via the China Eastern Airlines.

"This year, China has become the main destination for our exports. Up until November exports to this country amounted to a total of 6.101 billion dollars, i.e. more than 20% of the country's annual trade. That's why this market is so important for the growth and consolidation of Peruvian exporters," Garcia said.

The Sunat said it would continue to simplify its customs procedures, maintaining an ongoing dialogue with business associations, through the Consultative Customs Group.
