    Wow that's a massive increase especially considering the world economy.

    However the article only spoke about 61% of the export destinations. What about the other 39%?

    Though I was surprised to see that only 18%of exports go to its neighbours. It really does seem if Paraguay has the outward looking trade of the Pacific Alliance and not the closed in trade of Mercosur.

    I suspect they snap up Argentine markets as KFC is flying her country into the ground. Still it is nice to see the saner countries in the region prosper.

    Let's take a look at “forced” exports of electricity to argieland and Brazil. Latest research indicates that argieland and Brazil are “paying” Paraguay an extremely low price for electricity from the Itaipu and Yacyreta dams. Honest countries would increase what they pay. No chance of that with argieland!
