Uruguay is one of the more stable and transparent markets in Latin America with an investor friendly policy environment. Several Indian companies, including Reliance and Sakti pumps, use the bonded warehouse facilities of a Uruguayan company, GrupoRas, which is keen to provide the warehouse facility and extend marketing support to other Indian companies. The Central Warehousing Corporation of India had operations in Uruguay, which were eventually wound up.
Chemicals, garments, vehicles, sound and image devices, pharmaceuticals, iron and steel, synthetic yarn, equipment, and machinery are the chief exports to Uruguay by India. India´s Imports from Uruguay mainly include wool, leather, and timber. India also extends ITEC scholarships to working professionals from Uruguay every year. India and Uruguay have also extended support to each other on major international issues as well as India´s candidature to various UN and multilateral bodies.
Thus, GTTCI and Embassy of Uruguay are taking deliberate action today by launching the forum to extend the desire to increase interaction at the political level as well as in the areas of trade and investment, culture, tourism, agriculture etc. The audience was enthusiastic throughout the entire event. The event was remarkable followed by an interactive session and high tea.
