More about Uruguay
- USAERS: Modern history of Uruguay from World War I to today, covering all major events on politics, economy, society, and technology.
Uruguay is the country with the greatest freedom of the press in South America. The media landscape is diverse, but characterized by economic concentration.
Press: Of the around 80 daily newspapers, the largest appear in Montevideo, including “El País” (founded in 1918), “El Observador” (founded in 1991) and “La República” (founded in 1988). In Paysandú, the fourth largest city in Uruguay, »El Telégrafo«, the largest daily newspaper outside the capital region, appears. Well-known weekly papers are »Búsqueda« (founded in 1972) and »Brecha« (founded in 1985).
Uruguay does not have its own news agency.
Broadcasting: The state cultural institution SODRE operates four radio stations. There are also around 100 radio stations, most of which are grouped together in the Asociación Nacional de Broadcasters Uruguayos (ANDEBU). The largest of around 20 television broadcasters are the state TV Nacional Uruguay (TUN) and the private broadcasters “Monte Carlo TV”, “Teledoce” and “Canal 10”.
The progressive integration with Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay into the common Mercosur markethas posed major problems for agriculture, as neighboring countries produce more cheaply in most areas. The agricultural sector contributes 6.8% (2016) to the creation of GDP and employs around 9% of the workforce. Around 83% of the country’s area is used for agriculture; however, the proportion of arable land is only 14%. The most important crops are wheat, rice and soybeans. Barley, maize, sorghum, sugar cane and fruit and vegetables are also grown. Most of the agricultural land includes meadows and pastures. Livestock farming, especially cattle and sheep, is dominant, with the focus on meat and wool production, albeit with relatively low productivity. Agriculture is mainly organized on a large scale.
Fishing: fishing is practiced almost exclusively for export; the catch in 2016 was 51,600 t.
The service sector contributes 64.4% to GDP (2016) and employs around 68% of the workforce. Montevideo is one of the most important financial centers in South America and is the seat of banks and insurance companies as well as a stock exchange.
Tourism: The tourism industry has developed into an important economic factor for Uruguay since the 1990s. The foreign visitors come mainly from Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Paraguay. According to the World Tourism Organization, revenues from tourism amounted to US $ 2.07 billion in 2018. The main attractions are the seaside resort of Punta del Este and the extensive sandy beaches on the Atlantic Ocean. Check computerdo to see South America Tourism.
Although the share of GDP in the industrial sector, at 28.8% (2016), is significantly higher than that of agriculture, around half of the industrial companies process agricultural raw materials (food and luxury food, wood, textile and leather industries); the proportion of employees is around 23%. The industrial sector is growing only slowly; large investments are to be found especially in the wood and cellulose industry. In addition to Montevideo, the main industrial locations are Paysandú and Fray Bentos on the Río Uruguay.
With the exception of small amounts of gold, limestone, iron ore and feldspar, hardly any mineral raw materials are mined.
Almost two thirds of the energy industry is based on hydropower. Electricity generation is around 12,200 million kWh; the share of renewable energy sources (especially wind power plants) is being expanded.
The well-developed transport network is geared towards the capital. The approximately 1,700 km long railway network is used almost exclusively for freight traffic. There are connections to the Argentine and Brazilian route network. With a total length of around 77,700 km of roads, 7,700 km of which are paved, Uruguay has the densest road network in South America. The most important north-south connection is the road from Rivera on the Brazilian border to Montevideo. The most important inland waterways are the Río de la Plata and the Río Uruguay, which together are navigable for 560 km. There are 1,600 km of navigable inland waterways in total. Most of Uruguay’s foreign trade is handled through the seaport of Montevideo. The main international airport, Carrasco, is 20 km east of Montevideo.
