  • Govt will “substantially“ lower $15m investment floor that applied to earlier tax breaks so more projects qualify
  • Govt is trying to condition business loans made by state-run commercial bank Banco Republica so companies maintain or increase their payrolls
  • NOTE: Uruguay’s economy is forecast to shrink 3% this year due to the impact from the coronavirus, according to the IMF
