Uruguay’s world first in cattle farming

Uruguay is sometimes described as “one big farm”. It’s a country, albeit a small one, where cattle outnumber people by four to one and farming is the most important part of the economy. Uruguay is now the only country in the world with a completely computerised traceability system – meaning consumers at home and abroad know exactly where their beef comes from and how it was raised. In a world first, all cattle in this country are now electronically tagged at birth in the first completely traceable meat process. The system has already cost Uruguay U$70 million ($3m; £1.9m) to implement but it has helped to reinforce the country’s reputation as the world’s premier supplier and producer of quality beef.BBC By Wyre...

The Selling Price

The key for selling a property quickly and well in Uruguay is the right price.  We are used to see selling prices in online ads, in print and through word-of-mouth. The  theoretical market price is reflected in these actions. On the contrary the real market price is the  combination of different variables such as a strong expertise of  the Uruguayan real estate market, a deep knowledge of the international investors’ needs and their interests,  a competitive intelligence, information from our 8 offices in Uruguay and of course  the budget of purchasers.

Uruguay, a good place for your investment and your money

That’s how Josh Spero describes Uruguay for readers of Spear’s Wealth Management Survey. Spero offers one of the most sophisticated and accurate depictions of the “Switzerland of South America” and “Argentina’s kid brother.” The narrative begins with a description of Uruguay and Switzerland’s shared advantages for foreign investors: Banking secrecy laws? Check. Favorable tax regime? Check. But the present-day similarities end there considering that Switzerland is knee-deep in recession while Uruguay emerged relatively unscathed having already beefed up its banking system and capital ratios almost a decade ago. Proof of confidence is evident in the country’s direct foreign investment numbers: From $397 million in 2004 to $2.2 billion in 2008 with Spain, Argentina and the United States accounting for the bulk of the funds flowing in. “Part of what has been driving this foreign investment,” Spero says, “is Uruguay’s seductive taxation rules, both for individuals and corporations.” Source: investba.com...
