The U.S.-Peru Trade Promotion Agreement (PTPA) has significantly benefitted U.S.-origin food and agricultural product exports to Peru. Despite Peru’s 2015 economic slowdown, recording their second highest dollar figure since the PTPA’s implementation in 2009. U.S. consumer-oriented food exports to Peru in 2014 grew to a record $240 million (highest export level since calendar year – CY 1970), up by $176 million or 280 percent compared to CY 2009 levels. The United States with a market share of almost 20 percent is Peru’s major supplier of consumer-oriented food products. Improving economic growth in 2016-19, will further stimulate demand for U.S.-origin product.
