Overview About International Trade in Uruguay

Main Industry Sectors

Agriculture contributes10% to the GDP and it is the largest export sector. Uruguay has rich agricultural land.  Almost 90% of the land is devoted to livestock breeding (cattle, sheep, horses and pigs). Rice is the main crop, followed by wheat, corn and sugar cane. There is also a gardening market and fruit farming as well as a wine-growing industry all along the coast of the Rio de la Plata.

Agriculture and animal food processing account for half of the industrial activity, which represents about one fourth of the GDP. Fray Bentos and Paysandu are companies well-known for their frozen meat factories and canned foods. Other manufacturing activities include beverages (especially wines), textiles, construction materials, chemicals, oil and coal.

Services employ more than two thirds of the population and contribute almost 60% to the GDP, mainly due to financial services and tourism.
