Feb. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Peru’s tax collection rose 13 percent to 75.5 billion soles ($28.1 billion) last year compared with 2010, the government said.

Tax collection was equivalent to 16 percent of the country’s gross domestic product, the highest since 2008, said the state tax and import duty collection agency known as Sunat in an e-mailed statement.

Tax collection rose 10 percent last month from a year earlier, the agency said.
