About Paraguay

Paraguay, a landlocked country about the size of California located in the heart of South America, recently joined the upper middle income category.  With nearly 7 million people, this small but open economy has had an average growth of 5% over the last decade. However, Paraguay’s growth is very volatile, and mostly reliant on natural resources.
