Bolivia - GDP

After growth slowed in the first half of 2019 amid shrinking investment and a weak external sector, activity likely continued to falter in the remainder of the year. In year-on-year terms, merchandise exports contracted in January–October due to declining natural gas shipments to Argentina and Brazil. Moreover, a marked drop in capital goods imports in the same period hints that investment remained subdued. This, combined with the political and social turmoil that arose amid the controversial 20 October general election—which saw the resignation and exile of former president Evo Morales—likely took a toll on the economy in the final stretch of the year. In other news, on 4 January, the country’s electoral body announced that new presidential and legislative elections will be held on 3 May. Morales will not participate in the vote.
