SHARE: is the country’s new gateway to the digital world. It is a web portal that presents the best of Uruguay to the world in one place.

This digital platform was developed as part of a collaborative process involving the Presidency of the Republic, the Agency for Electronic Government and the Information and Knowledge Society (Agesic), the investment, export, and country image promotion agency, Uruguay XXI, the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Livestock, Agriculture and Fisheries, the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mining, and the Uruguayan Chamber of Information Technology (CUTI), among others.

“It is a tool for positioning the country that will also allow us to know the audiences interested in Uruguay. It is an overview of the country for all those interested in investing, living, visiting, or trading with Uruguay, where they can learn about our customs, landscapes, productive country, and our achievements at a global level”, he added.
