Peru suspends import of agricultural products from Bolivia

Peru’s National Agricultural Health Service (Senasa) announced the suspension of imports of plant products and other animal products as published by El Comercio. The action is in response to the measure imposed by the Bolivian government, which suspended the imports of Peruvian vegetables, “without technical sustenance”. Peru and Bolivia maintain a historic agricultural trade relationship, which during 2019 achieved the import of 896,000 kilos of boneless beef and was allowed to import 10,499 tons of peanuts, 1,614 tons of chia and 617,000 metric tons of soy and its derivatives.
