PARAGUAY 2016 Investment Guide

Stable, competitive and bursting with business opportunities, Paraguay continues to drive forth change. As it gains credibility around the globe, the rapidly diversifying country is using unprecedented inward investment to close the inequality gap and build a sustainable future.

Incentives include tax breaks, full repatriation of capital and profit, as well as the same rights for foreign investors as local business people.
