Paraguay is negotiating with the government of Argentina use of its ports at Ibicuy and Diamante. Ibicuy, in particular, is one of the most important deepwater ports in the region, exporting wood, grain and forestry products. It is responsible for the handling of 600,000 tonnes of produce each year, of which cellulose accounts for 100,000 tonnes.

Paraguay would like to establish a Freezone at the port, which would handle its own export products, since the established Freezone at the port of Rosario does not connect with the Paraguay inland waterway network.
