Trade Commissioner Service - Uruguay

Welcome to the office of the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service in Montevideo. The Embassy is committed to supporting Canadian companies that have selected Uruguay as a market for their products, services and technologies.

Uruguay is a stable country that has recorded relatively strong economic growth over the last eight years. Generally speaking, its various export sectors have seen significant increases in activity. The World Bank predicts that Uruguay’s GDP will grow by 4 percent in 2013 and in each of the following two years. However, the country’s inflation rate, which stood at 7.48 percent at the end of 2012, remains a concern.
