Uruguay Water Report 2015
BMI View: Owing to its state ownership and comparatively limited project pipeline, we view Uruguay asone of the least open and least attractive markets in the region with regards to its water and sanitationsectors, and we do not anticipate any substantial changes to this status quo over the next fiveyears.
