How TecEx Can Help You Import into Uruguay

Like its near-neighbor Paraguay, Uruguay has largely been overlooked as a Tech destination. Despite having a promising Tech sector, the countries location sandwiched between two of the biggest economies in the region has meant it has struggled to compete for foreign investment. After investing substantially in its information and communication technologies, the country is finally becoming recognized as a regional leader.

Ironically, Uruguay got its break during the Covid-19 pandemic. While other economies struggled, the country boasts the highest-fiber optic internet penetration and best download speeds in the LATAM region. However, with the emergency of the countries first unicorn and a sophisticated coronavirus app, the rest of the world has been forced to sit up and take note of this tiny but fierce country. As it continues to go from strength to strength, this stable and well-connected land could replace its neighbors as the South American tech destination of choice.
