Uruguay – The country of Gauchos
Uruguay is a popular tourist destination with its diverse landscape and nature. Due to its friendly culture and attitude towards life, it is also the destination of emigrants for families and pensioners, and investors and companies. The land-locked country with an area of approximately half of Germany has a population of approximately more than 3 million residents. In comparison, Germany has around 82 million residents. Around 10,000 German expats reside in the European country of South America. The European structures are attributable to the influences of the former immigrants from Switzerland and Holland. Riesling, Apple strudel or excellent choice of cheeses, everything can be found in Uruguay. If one is searching for tranquillity and serenity, the back country of Estancia offers it, as more than half of the residents of Uruguay stay in and around Montevideo. Montevideo is the main city and likewise the only metropolis of the country and the business and administrative centre. Another popular region for settlement of immigrants is the town Atlantida, which is approximately 40 Km to the east of Montevideo.

Uruguay – Culture and Economy
The capital city Montevideo stands out due to the safety and high quality of life. The architecture and cultural life have a lot to offer, e.g., diverse theatre, well-known museums like “Museo Histórico Nacional” and beautiful buildings like “La Plaza Independencia” and the “Kathedrale von Montevideo”. The educational level is very high as compared to the neighbours. Uruguay has established its position in terms of business, and it is one of the important transhipment and foreign trade centres in Southern Latin America due to the port of Montevideo. Uruguay is an upwardly mobile emerging country with the market-based social elements, which is unique in South America. Though the economic growth has been flattened in 2015 and 2016, Uruguay looks retrospectively at a successful decade and works on the important reforms. Montevideo has developed itself as a reliable and structurally outstanding partner of the international trade and its port as an important transhipment port at Río de la Plata. Uruguay is interested in the development of MERCOSUR, of which it is a member, and it also interested in the relationship based on a partnership with its neighbours and the countries within the continent. The bilateral contracts and agreements for accessibility of the sea port to Paraguay run considerably smoothly and in a balanced manner as compared to that between Paraguay and Argentina.
The success of the port is also attributable to the comparatively modern structure and better administration of port of Montevideo. Due to this, many shipping companies prefer Montevideo for transhipment of the container and goods on and by river boats.
