Koper, Slovenia (PortSEurope) November 20, 2020 – Yesterday, a webinar “Doing Business with the Port of Koper, Paraguayan export – import to Europe via the Port of Koper” was presented in a joint effort of the Embassy of Paraguay in Vienna, the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Slovenian Ship & Freight Agents Association and the Slovenian Association of Port Logistics Providers together with Luka
Koper. Paraguay was represented by the Investment and Export Network and the Center for Fluvial and Maritime Shipowners – all opportunities and formal procedures for potential exporters and importers, with special emphasis on accessibility on Central and Eastern European Markets. Landlocked Paraguay relies on its fluvial ports for international commerce, mostly exporting various raw materials, agricultural  and industrial product. Current Paraguayan traffic volumes via port of Koper are quite modest, with only few hundred containers annually. There is potential especially on the agricultural segment, mostly, soybean, fodder and vegetables oils. Such events increase the visibility of the transport route through Slovenia, also in the light of new trade agreements between the EU and Mercosur. Paraguay, as a member of Mercosur, enjoys relatively favorable economic forecasts, which, together with national development plans, open up new commercial opportunities for the development of overseas transport.
