Presenting the policies and strategies of her Ministry to the Commission of Foreign Trade and Tourism Congress, Ms. Silva said Peru has signed 19 foreign trade agreements to date, which has resulted in diversification of markets, in which over 95 percent of Peruvian products enjoy exports trade preferences.
She said the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (MINCETUR) is working on future trade negotiations with Russia, India, Indonesia, Turkey and Israel, among other countries, which would give us benefits in several sectors, including textiles and clothing, according to a press release.
“The trade agreements are part of the national strategy that seeks to turn Peru into an exporter of goods and value-added services to provide greater economic opportunities, primarily to small and medium enterprises (SMEs),” the Minister said.
Ms. Silva said ExpoPerú events are very important for the development and promotion of exports. The recent fairs held in Costa Rica and Panama achieved US$ 18 million in sales, 38 percent higher than the 2011 edition, plus 548 business meetings and more than 190 buyers.
In the coming months, ExpoPerú would be organized in Brazil and Mexico, she informed.
