Peru March trade surplus jumps due to metals, petroleum exports

LIMA, May 11 (Reuters) - Peru’s trade surplus surged to $76 million in March due to growing exports of copper, zinc, petroleum products and natural gas, the central bank said on Thursday.

That compares with a trade surplus of $5 million in the same month a year earlier. Last week, Peru sharply raised its annual 2017 trade surplus forecast to $3.706 billion from $776 million previously due to higher commodity prices.
