Paraguay to reopen border with Brazil after six months

The government of Paraguay has announced that land traffic on its border with Brazil is expected to reopen shortly, reported O Estado de São Paulo. The Paraguayan government created a health protocol for a future controlled reopening, with the aim of reactivating trade between the two countries.

The measure was announced at the beginning of a week in which Ciudad del Este traders are planning actions to demand the full opening of the border with the neighboring country, in which the region’s commercial activities revolve.

The border crossing has been closed for six months because of the coronavirus pandemic, with a major impact on trade between the two countries.
