Trade Mission to Peru - May 2009

Peru represents a rapidly expanding market for American goods and services. Fueled by robust economic growth and eased market access conditions, U.S. exports to Peru have doubled in the past four years. In 2007 alone, American exports grew by 41% to a record level of $4.1 billion. This trend should be reinforced as a result of U.S. Congressional approval in December 2007 of the U.S. Peru Trade Promotion Agreement (commonly referred to as the U.S.- Peru Free Trade Agreement, or FTA). The agreement went into effect on February 1, 2009 and will level the playing field for U.S. companies by providing greater access to the Peruvian market and improving the overall commercial and investment climate.
