This visit is a direct result of the UK-Paraguay Invest Forum which took place in London in September 2016 organised by REDIEX and counted with the presence of the Paraguayan Minister of Industry and Commerce Gustavo Leite.

This is the first such visit in Paraguay since the Embassy re-opened in 2013.
