IN BRIEF: Uruguay's ports expecting record traffic in 2016

Uruguayan ports will see record cargo shipments this year partly thanks to Argentine President Mauricio Macri's decree lifting restrictions on the transshipment of Argentine products through Uruguay, said Ana Rey, director of Uruguay's national logistics institute.

Growth in cargo traffic from Paraguay, increased container traffic from Finnish firm UPM's pulp mill in Frey Bentos and the return of Argentine products passing through Uruguay spells good news for Uruguay's port sector, Rey said in a press release issued by the office of the president.

Industry interests, public and private, in Uruguay are pushing for the standardization of institutional frameworks for free-trade zones for Mercosur member nations, among other sector programs, the release noted.
