China is the main destination for Peruvian exports and the main supplier of products that Peru imports, he said, underlining that the value of bilateral trade exchange reached more than US$22 billion in 2020.

‘And even despite the effects of the pandemic, in 2021 we observe a notorious recovery of our bilateral trade flows, which, as of the first half of the year surpassed 14 billion dollars,’ he added.

According to President Castillo, Peru-China trade generates greater opportunities for economic growth to the benefit of both countries.
