Peru posts $433 mln trade surplus in August -central bank

LIMA, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Peru posted a $433 million trade surplus in August, the central bank said on Thursday, higher than the $90 million surplus posted in the same month last year and a $213 million surplus in July.

The increase came amid a rise in volumes and prices for the country’s copper and gold exports, the central bank said. Peru is the world’s second-largest copper producer and has maintained a positive trade balance since July 2016 as base metal prices have recovered.
