Peru posts 2013 trade balance deficit for the first time in 12 years

LIMA, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Peru posted a $365 million trade deficit in 2013, the first negative reading in more than a decade as the Andean country’s mineral exports slumped on lower prices and weak global economic growth, the central bank said on Thursday.

Peru, the world’s third largest copper producer, registered a $480 million surplus in December.

In 2012, Peru posted a $4.82 billion trade surplus.
