Dock Strike Slows Peru's Mineral Exports


"At least eleven ships stall at mineral export terminal."

A strike at Peru's main port was slowing down mineral exports on Monday as workers demanded better benefits, a union leader said.

There were at least 11 boats waiting to be loaded or unloaded at the port of Callao, said Wilmer Esteves. The back-up occurred at a terminal used to export minerals from Peru's central Andes.

Peru is a top metals exporter and is the world's second largest zinc producer.
