Uruguay Aims to Be Exporter of Non-Traditional Services

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguay is working “very hard” to become an exporter of non-traditional services in areas such as architecture, engineering, furniture design, information technology and textiles, the manager of exports at trade promotion agency Uruguay XXI, Pablo Pereira, said on Tuesday.

“Overseas sales of services have shown very interesting dynamics,” Pereira said. “In fact, Uruguay is positioning itself as a services exporter, particularly regarding non-traditional services, which are becoming a strong sector in the country.”

The Uruguay XXI official spoke with reporters during a workshop on services exports organized by the agency.

Pereira noted the importance of non-traditional services exports, which, according to Uruguay XXI, currently account for 21 percent of total exports, up from 2 percent in 1990, adding that this was an area where the country excels.

GlobalizeU consulting firm founder and director Mario Sanchez, for his part, said the focus of his company’s work with current and potential exporters was to provide support to start-ups.

“This is not about theory or academic dissertations, but rather about the transfer of experiences,” Sanchez said. “It is necessary to show people how to conduct business overseas, because even if we speak different languages or are in another country, we are all equals.”
