Peruvian exporters look to capitalise on EU import ban

Peruvian exporters: Russia’s ban on imports of goods from the EU and US could open up a $1bn export market for Peru, according to Gaston Pacheco, the head of the Association of Exporters of Peru (ADEX). In order to capitalise on the new opportunities, Peruvian suppliers and the government in Lima needed to work closely with Russia over food regulations, particularly around the issue of pest control, he said.
