Mining Industry

Peru is rich in natural resources, and it has large deposits and production of lead, copper, gold, and zinc that are being exported in large quantities. The mineral-rich areas in Peru are within the Andes where mining has taken place for thousands of years. In the year 2000, nearly 50% of Peru’s exports were of mineral resources. Gold, silver & copper constitute the primary mining resources in the country and for gold, the two gold mines, Yanacocha & Pierina are the significant sources of Peru gold. These are the two gold mines that generate highest revenue when compared with other gold reserves of Peru. The mining industry of Peru contributes to closely 10% of the GDP. Overall, mining industry as a whole is labour intensive and manpower driven sector which takes great precaution and care in terms of safety of the mining workers and the process by itself. Hence, international standards like ISO 9001 certification in Peru, ISO 14001 certification in Peru and ISO 45001 certification in Peru becomes an inevitable choice for the organizations in this sector.

Fishing Industry

Fishing is one of the major industries in Peru alongside mining and petroleum processing. The fishing industry is ranked fourth in size globally. 

Peru contributes to 10% of the world’s fish consumption through its fishing industry. The fishing sector was government-owned industry until 1994.

Tourism Industry

Tourism is an important sector of Peru economy, contributing about close to 7% of the country’s GDP and is also a significant industry in Peru. From the 1990s, both the government and the private sector have been making efforts to boost this industry. As a result, revenue from the sector has been constantly growing in numbers. The developments in the tourism industry led to the creation of jobs for about one million Peruvians.

The two focus areas for tourism has been ecotourism and heritage tourism. Examples of tourist attractions in Peru include the Andes Mountains, Amazon rain forest, Colca Canyon, and Machu Picchu. The famous Inca city known as Machu Picchu attracts many tourists to Peru. Additionally, the Amazon rain forest attracts many ecotourists.

Tourist attractions in Peru gives life to adventure tourism which is highly emulated with the safety and precautionary norms as recommended by International standards like ISO 21101 certification in Peru (Adventure Tourism), often marketed primarily to individuals and small-group travellers. By far, the largest population in terms of Peru’s tourists come from Brazil and Chile due to close proximity and relations.

Manufacturing Industry

The manufacturing sector contributes upto 20% of the country’s GDP. In the past, Peru would export most of its raw materials. However, in recent times, the raw materials are being processed to add value before they are transported or exported. An example of an industry that engages in value addition is the textile industry which is responsible for exporting clothes to Europe and the US. An agreement signed by Peru with the European Union resulted in duty-free exports to its member states. The primary objective of the agreement was to help curb the drug trade and avoid corruption and fraudulent events.

The country has seen a recent trend of growing demand for ISO 37001 certification in Peru i.e, Anti-Bribery Management System in Peru for organizations to detect and address the bribery issues across the company and its business activities.
