She said the bilateral trade between Peru and the US was around US$ 16 billion in 2012, and it is expected to grow to US$ 16.5 billion in 2013.
 
She added that the trade could further grow in the coming years if textile exports pick up, Peruvian news agency andina reported.
 
Textiles, including garments, have been a major component of Peruvian exports to the US, and trade would rise if there is a recovery in this sector, Ms. Likins said.
