Peru: Peru 2011-16 National Agricultural Policy Progress

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Peru’s Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation held events on June 14 and June 22, 2016 reviewing progress made during the administration of President Ollanta Humala (2011-16). The overarching theme that dominated both events was water supply. The Ministry of Agriculture has invested over $177 million in irrigation-related projects, its single largest investment, which has benefited some 315,000 agricultural producers. Peru’s agricultural sector grew an average of 3.2 percent per year from 2011-16, with production doubling between 2006 and 2015. Growth has been propelled by increased cultivation of non-traditional crops such as asparagus, avocados, quinoa, and grapes; these now account for 85 percent of Peru’s agro-exports. The ministry expects agricultural exports to exceed $6 billion in 2016 and surpass $10 billion by 2021.
