Fitch Ratings recently affirmed that Paraguay is resilient to the commodity price downturn. As one of the largest natural resource exporters in Fitch’s ‘BB’ category, Paraguay is “well positioned to weather the ongoing downturn in commodity prices mainly due to relatively strong fiscal and external balance sheets. Paraguay’s increasingly diversified export base and productivity enhancements in the agriculture sector have also improved its ability to manage the decline in prices. [It] maintained a record of dynamic growth and single-digit inflation and prudently built fiscal and external buffers during the commodity boom.
Paraguay’s growth was the highest of its peers at a five-year average of 7% in 2014.”
