More Trade between Guatemala and Peru

The union of Guatemalan merchants and the embassy of Peru signed an agreement to increase trade between the two economies.

Monday, April 16, 2018

According to figures from Banco de Guatemala, in 2017 the Central American country imported $71 million worth of goods from Peru and exported $86 million worth to the South American country.

The president of the Chamber of Commerce of Guatemala, Jorge Briz, told that " ... the income from exports and imports that each of the countries receives is minimal, which opens up an opportunity to promote small and medium-sized companies to become suppliers of goods and services. "

For his part, Amador Velásquez, Peru's ambassador to Guatemala, said that " ... They are making the necessary effort to advance and deepen the bilateral agenda, to recover the optimal relationship that Peru has always had with Guatemala and to encourage business and diversify trade."
