Exports have been one of the main focus of Peruvian economy in the latest years. Looking for Free Trading Agreements have shown to be a quite beneficial for expanding Peruvian products to international markets.
The national association confirmed that since 1979, the shipment of greater added value to countries abroad grew 7.2% annually. It is worth mentioning that Peru is looking to close other Free Trade Agreements, such as the one with Australia.
The association also stated that a non-traditional export labor regime has assisted the growth of exports, improving their added value. This regime allows companies exporting items such as textiles or agro-industries, to hire workers temporarily and indefinitely.
It should be noted that the positions generated under the regime have access to all labor rights and benefits considered in Peruvian law.
