After 12 years of the export ban, in which the country ceased to receive more than $1 billion, the national government enacted the supreme decree authorizing the free export of agricultural products and promoting production; however, President Añez warned that the rule should not mean an increase in prices in the domestic market. The decree exempts the export of products that have self-sufficiency, such as wheat. Soybean Export focuses on four countries: Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and Chile. Bolivia seeks to enter China’s Market with soy; currently, the phytosanitary opening is in process. It estimates that this will generate up to $500 million in a year.
