Mining and hydrocarbons contribute significantly to the Peruvian economy. The extractive sector generated 75% of total Peruvian exports in the first semester of 2012 and accounted for 5% of GDP. In 2010, Peru occupied a leading position in the global production of the following mineral commodities such as copper (second after Chile), gold (sixth after China, Australia, South Africa, the United States, and Russia), lead (fourth after China, Australia, and the United States), molybdenum (fourth after China, the United States, and Chile), silver (first followed by China and Mexico), tin (third after China and Indonesia), and zinc (second after China). The country is a significant producer of oil and gas. Ongoing development of natural gas and condensates in the Camisea basin is boosting the extractive sector contribution to Peru’s economy and to the Government’s fiscal revenues.
Designated compliant in February 2012, Peru’s EITI implementation slowed down in 2012. The 2012-2014 work plan, approved in December 2012, includes publishing the 2011-2012 report in 2013, disseminating it together with the previous report in 2013 and piloting three regional implementations. The Sectretariat has been staffed in early 2013 , however other progress with the work plan has been limited in 2013.
