Trade promotion agreement

In an effort to continue to eliminate commercial barriers, Peru and the U.S. signed The United States-Peru Trade Promotion Agreement (PTPA) which came into effect in February of 2009. This accord has been mutually beneficial, as it has opened up new markets for both parties, created a safer environment for U.S. investors, and addressed issues on sustainability, among other things.
