Republic of Peru


Brazil and Peru have maintained a Strategic Alliance since 2003. The main topics on the bilateral agenda include the strengthening of economic-commercial ties, border integration, improvement of regional infrastructure, and cooperation in several areas, such as security, the fight against drug trafficking, science and technology, and technical cooperation.

Both countries are members of the Latin American Integration Association (ALADI). In January 2019, the schedule for tariff elimination of the Economic Complementation Agreement No. 58 between MERCOSUR and Peru was completed. It was preceded by the conclusion of the MERCOSUR  tariff elimination agreements with other countries in the region, which allowed the formation of a virtual area of free trade between Brazil and South America.

Brazil is Peru’s third largest trading partner. In 2018, the commercial exchange was $3.97 billion between both countries, an increase of 2.5% in relation to 2017. Brazilian exports reached $2.15 billion, and imports reached $1.81 billion. Brazil exported to Peru mainly passenger cars; polymers of ethylene, propylene and styrene; chassis; iron and steel bars; paper and cardboard. In turn, Brazil imported naphtha; copper ores and their concentrates; zinc ores and their concentrates and copper cathodes and their elements.

Border integration is a priority on the bilateral relations. Brazil shares with Peru its second longest border (2.995 km), only behind Bolivia. In 2009, the two countries signed an agreement to establish the Brazil - Peru Vice-Ministerial Commission for Border Integration (CVIF), which provides a framework for discussing topics such as integrated border control; transport; border health; environmental cooperation and indigenous subjects.

In order to deepen border cooperation and foster development in the region, the Commission has three border committees and different working groups, such as the Group on Border Environmental Cooperation (GCAF) and the Working Group on Border Health.

The fight against transnational crimes, particularly drug trafficking, is another topic of great importance on the bilateral agenda, given the common challenges that Brazil and Peru share in border areas. The Joint Commission on drugs and related topics has been a forum for the political and diplomatic monitoring of the constant collaboration between the authorities of the two countries for law enforcement in the border region.

Brazil maintains with Peru its most extensive technical cooperation program with a South American country. The initiatives underway cover the areas of health, water resources, agroforestry systems, social development, labor, among others.
