(October 2008) The Friendship Bridge (Portuguese: Ponte da Amizade, Spanish: Puente de la Amistad) is an arch bridge connecting the Brazilian city of Foz do Iguaçu and the Paraguayan city of Ciudad del Este. History and importance The Brazil-Paraguay border on the bridge The bridge was opened to traffic in 1965. The space between the main arch is 290m (303m in total). The bridge itself is 552.4m long. The bridge is extremely important to the economies of both Foz do Iguaçu and all of Paraguay. Most of Paraguay's imports and exports pass through the bridge, generating constant traffic problems throughout the area.[citation needed] Brazilian smugglers usually come and go through this bridge[citation needed], smuggling mostly electronic devices such as handheld computers, digital cameras and sometimes weapons, since in Paraguay they are allowed to sell weapons that are not permitted in Brazil.[citation needed] They usually transport themselves in private buses.[citation needed] Although there is an import tax of 60% on the price of anything (coming from Paraguay into Brazil) costing more than 300 dollars, smugglers often pay bribes to avoid paying any taxes.[citation needed] BR-277 begins immediately after the end of the bridge in the Brazilian side.
