Economic Structure:

In 1995, the primary sector, basically made up by agriculture and animal husbandry, contributed 22% to the value added of the total supply of goods and services. The secondary sector generated 26%, mainly agroindustry, while 52% of the global economic activity corresponds to the supply of financial, transport and communications, commerce, tourism, and government services.

Entre Ríos’s economy is based on a Pampean type agroindustry (cereals, oilseeds, meat), the production of rice, fresh citrus fruit (mandarin and orange) and round log lumbering for export, especially eucalyptus. Poultry production is also important, while the most significant industries are rice mills, citrus juices processing, wood manufactures and cold-storage and oils processing plants.


Tourist attractiveness is chiefly based on the El Palmar National Park, Predelta National Park, Palacio San Martín and the Gualeguaychú Carnival.
