OUTLOOK TO INVEST IN PARAGUAY:
Paraguay now offers an attractive outlook for investment in lands. Here are some considerations in this regard:
- Market of the European Union (UE-27) Suitable for Paraguayan beef exports (Hilton Quota).
- Status of Country with insignificant risk of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE); Paraguay happens to hold this distinction in the very exclusive group of only 10 countries that have it.
- Maintaining the health status of the country (Country Certification with FMD free zone with vaccination).
- Great prices of "fat farm" (eg. Average standing Stag U$S 1.62 per kg).
With its current production only supplies the domestic market, so there are infinite possibilities for Export of dairy products. With rational handling there are cowshed with a production of 30 liters per cow.
Opportunities in Agriculture:
- Stevia Rebaudiana Bertoni
- Rice Varieties
- Production of fruits and vegetables
- Freshwater Shrimp
- Commodities Opportunities
- Sesame Chain
- Balanced food Production Chain
- Cereal Production
- Organic Production
In this aspect Paraguay has a huge advantage. It doesn"t have deductions, and currently a producer receives U$S 400 per ton. of Soy, also in the best areas can be 3 harvests per year.
The diversity of soils and climate can sow: wheat, Prime and second class soy, Prime and second class sorghum, Prime and second class corn, rice, sunflower, sesame, sugarcane, cotton and canola.
Paraguay is ranked as the 6th largest producer of soybeans as 4th largest exporter after the United States, Brazil and Argentina.
The main soybean area of the country is in the south, east and north of the eastern region, known as the soy route. Some important points of production are: Ñacunday, Colonia Pindo, Colonias Unidas, Línea Paulista, Katuete, Santa Rosa, Santa Lucia, Naranjal, Carlos A. López, Raúl Peña, Los Cedrales, Curuguaty, located in the Departments of Alto Paraná, Itapúa, Caaguazú, San Pedro, Canendiyu, Caazapá.
It is an interesting alternative business. Worldwide there is a trend appreciation of wood and biomass in general for environmental issues and requirements for replacement of petroleum, and the use of non-renewable energy. And for environmental concerns, there is plenty of economic reasons for reforestation in Paraguay.
The reality is that Paraguay is being protagonist of this new world where food and fuels derived from agricultural production are becoming very important.
In summary, Paraguay, with its mild subtropical climate, with annual average temperatures between 21° and 25° and average rainfall of 1,400 mm, is an attractive pole investment for Livestock and agriculture, like the Agro-Industry where there is still much to do, and where entrepreneurs find a niche of unimaginable businesses.
