Agriculture in Paraguay – Why invest in 2015
Agriculture Opportunities in Paraguay
Agriculture in Paraguay. Bordered by Bolivia, Argentina and Brazil, Paraguay lies firmly in the heart of South America. With a land area of just under half a million square kilometres, the country is considerably smaller than its neighbours and has the least dense population in the region. With few mineral resources, Paraguay’s economy revolves around agriculture.
The country name Paraguay originates from the Guarani word for a great river (pararaguay), the Parana River. Indeed, the river is so large that it provides Paraguay, a landlocked country, with access to the Atlantic Ocean, as well as enabling the country to generate a significant amount of hydroelectric power. Power is generated at two dams, one shared with Brazil and the other Argentina, which supply all of Paraguay’s electricity requirements and have enabled the country to become the largest exporter of hydroelectric power in the world.
