Paraguay, with its politically and economically stable environment, could be an ideal springboard for Israeli technologies in Latin America, a minister from the country told The Jerusalem Post in an interview last week.

Paraguayan Trade and Investment Minister Gustavo Leite spoke with the Post on the sidelines of the Water Technology and Environmental Control Exhibition and Conference in Tel Aviv on Tuesday about the plethora of trade opportunities available between Israel and the South American nation.

With a favorable tax system and a stable business environment, Paraguay could be the key to providing Israeli innovators with comfortable and reliable access to the broader Latin American markets, Leite stressed.

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (Ma’an) — The Palestinian Authority signed a free trade agreement on Tuesday with South American trading bloc Mercosur.

Okay, this is old news I dug up, but it shows an attitude that South America has with the Palestinians. It is an official pro-Palestinian attitude that you would not see in the United States.

Mercosur is a South American trading bloc with includes Argentina, Brazil Paraguay, Uruguay, and Venuezuela.

Ciudad del Este is a Smuggler’s Paradise.

The problem is that Paraguay’s laws allow transactions that would be illegal elsewhere. Even if Hezbollah or Hamas were not smuggling arms or drugs – which they certainly are – they could still generate millions of dollars is cash for their organizations by operating legal or semi-legal businesses in Ciudad del Este.
