Uruguayan exports grew slightly in January

Montevideo, Feb 2 (Prensa Latina) Uruguay's exports of goods grew in January compared to the same month in 2022, according to official data.

Sales, including free zones, amounted to 852 million dollars in that period, a two-percent increase, said Uruguay XXI, an entity that promotes exports, investments and the country’s image.

In 2022, shipments abroad reached their all-time hight, summing 13,356 million dollars, 16.5 percent more than in 2021.

The slight increase, last January, is linked, above all, to the increase in pulp sales, which summarizes 168 million dollars, 91 percent more than in January 2022 and 20 percent of the total exported in January 2023.

Bovine meat was the second best-selling product, with 131 million dollars, although it was 39 percent less than in January 2022.

Uruguay XXI highlighted the year-on-year drop in purchases from China by 55 percent. However, the Chinese market continues to be the most important destination for Uruguayan beef.

Brazil was the first market for Uruguayan exports, with purchases summing up to 137 million dollars in January 2023 (16 percent year-on-year increase).

The most exported products to Brazil were dairy products, plastics, malt, rice and vehicles.
