According to Carmen Robatty de Moquillaza, vice president of the Pisco Committee, the increase is due to largest US requests, which registered a growth of 135%, and, in addition, concentrated 51% of the total sent to the world.
“If we want to maintain this trend, it is essential to continue the joint work between the public-private sector, identify and enter new destinations and improve the capacities of the actors in the sector”, Robatty mentioned.
