TABLE-Peru posts $226 million trade deficit in August -central bank

LIMA, Oct 16 (Reuters) - Peru, a top global exporter of copper and other minerals, posted a $226 million trade deficit in August, central bank chief economist Adrian Armas said on Friday.

The reading brings the shortfall logged so far this year to about $2.6 billion, according to central bank data.

Peru’s exports have fallen in the past year on slumping mineral prices. The central bank has estimated a $2.1 billion trade deficit in 2015 and $2 billion in 2016.
