LUXURY EXPAT EXPLORATION & INVESTMENT TOUR

PARAGUAY

MAY 13 - 21, 2024
9 DAYS/9 NIGHTS

PARAGUAY OVERVIEW

Paraguay, often overshadowed by its neighbours, is an emerging country with a unique profile:

  • Paraguay is a safe and stable country, with a government that is increasingly open to business and foreign investment.
  • There are no specific vaccine mandates for entering Paraguay.
  • Tax laws in Paraguay are relatively favourable to businesses, with incentives for foreign investors. All income generated abroad is tax-free, making Paraguay a territorial tax system.
  • Paraguay is self-sufficient in food production, with a strong focus on agriculture. Its population of about 7 million people is supported by an agricultural sector capable of feeding more people.
  • While certainly not the wealthiest country in South America by GDP per capita, Paraguay has a growing economy focusing on agriculture and hydroelectric power.
  • The culture in Paraguay is a blend of indigenous Guarani and European influences, notably from Spain. The population is diverse, with many citizens having mixed European and Guarani heritage.
  • Spanish and Guarani are both official languages, with Spanish being widely spoken. English is less common but is increasingly taught in schools and used in business settings.
