Paraguay is a strong stable economy offering excellent opportunities in agriculture and pastoral farming

Post available in: English Español Português

Paraguay is a fertile land of exuberant natural beauty in the central region of the continent of South America. Almost as big as California, this landlocked country (tells us that supply is limited) is located between Brazil, Argentina and Bolivia.

However, it only has about 6 -7 million inhabitants, who are concentrated almost entirely in the three largest cities in the country in the north.

Due to its central location, the country has been commonly referred to as the Heart of America.

During the last 50 years, Paraguay has quietly become one of the countries with the greatest financial and political stability in Latin America. Its citizens have access to food at affordable prices and electricity is cheap. They encourage foreign investment and immigration, when appropriate, and have a cosmopolitan population in their larger cities.

The country has been known for its international presence in agriculture. Here are some key factors about Paraguay’s strong and stable economy:

Between 1970 and 2013, the country had the highest economic growth in South America, with an average of 7.2% per year.

In 2010 and 2013, Paraguay experienced the greatest economic expansion in South America, with a GDP growth rate of 14.4% and 13.6% respectively.

Paraguay is the sixth largest producer of soybeans in the world, the second largest producer of Stevia, the second largest producer of oil of Tung, the sixth largest exporter of corn, the tenth largest exporter of wheat and the eighth largest exporter of beef.

Paraguay is the world’s leading electricity exporter, mainly to Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia and Uruguay.

Agriculture and the livestock industry traditionally dominate the Paraguayan economy and offer the best and safest opportunities for investors. Paraguay is one of the largest exporters of beef in the world.

Paraguay is endowed with abundant grazing lands, with estimates indicating that 40 percent of the country’s land is especially suitable for livestock and 20 percent in general adequate. The extraordinarily fertile soils produce very nutrient-rich pastures with high protein levels and lend themselves especially well to high-quality livestock.

Bet your claim on steak! The continued increase in global meat consumption means that livestock breeding continues to offer good stable yields.

The general climate in Paraguay is tropical to subtropical. January is the hottest month of summer, with an average daily temperature of 84 degrees F (28.9 degrees Celsius). Climatic conditions and fertile soil make Paraguay also ideal for the cultivation of various crops, including citrus crops. Its climate, with abundant rain, sun throughout the year, and very short winters are particularly ideal for making sweet fruits.

The rapid economic growth of the country also means that the demand for some food crops is so high that most of its annual consumption must be imported from neighboring countries.

The demand for farmland is STRONG! This offers great opportunities for potential investors in the cultivation of food in Paraguay since their entire crop can be sold within the country, without having to depend on the export market.
