EXPORT (FOB USD) PERU TO THE UK
The UK economy slowed down from 2018 to 2019 due to Brexit related uncertainty . During 2018, business investment declined, consumption was constrained by slow real income growth, and public debt remained stagnant (above 87% of GDP).
IMPORT (FOB USD) PERU FROM THE UK We can observe an increase in import value but at a slower growth rate. This is due to the aforementioned Brexit uncertainty. However, the commercial relationship between Peru and the Uk should continue based on the signed trade agreement between the UK and the Andean Countries (May 15,2018)
