LIMA: Peru's agricultural exports totaled 7.03 billion U.S. dollars in 2018, Agriculture Minister Gustavo Mostajo said Thursday.

This volume registered an increase of 12.4 percent from the year before.

Peru's thriving agri-export sector has been driven by the foreign trade policy of President Martin Vizcarra's government with an aim to diversify the country's export markets, said Mostajo.

Peruvian products in most market demand abroad last year included avocados, grapes, unroasted coffee, quinoa, cacao and mangoes, which represented around 44 percent of Peru's total agri-exports, reports Xinhua.
