Paraguay Investing in Textile Sector

26 February 2021

It is expected that the investment, spread across seven projects, will boost Paraguayan exports of industrial origin which in January reached a total of $85.1 million. This represents a 22% increase compared to the same month in 2020, according to the latest report from the Central Bank of Paraguay.

82% of Paraguay’s manufacturing exports go to Mercosur, or South American trade bloc, countries, specifically Brazil and Argentina. The rest heads mainly for the United States, Thailand, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador and Mexico.

Paraguay has placed an emphasis on assembly manufacturing for its economic development. Since 1997 the country has been implementing a special tax regime to encourage companies to establish production operations and assembly of auto parts, textiles, leather and footwear, among other products.
