Peru’s Exports Rose 31% in First 10 Months, Imports Gained 28%

Peruvian exports rose 31 percent to $37.7 billion in the first 10 months from a year earlier, an exporters group said.

Imports climbed 28 percent to $31.4 billion over the same period, Lima-based Comexperu said in an e-mailed statement today, citing customs data.

Exports fell 5 percent in October from September as demand for the country’s farm produce and natural gas declined, the organization said. It didn’t give a value for October shipments.
