Foreign investment falls $160 million in Bolivia

Bolivia closed 2019 with negative Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) of $160 million, a scenario that has not occurred for 14 years (2005). Bolivia pointed a higher outflow of capital, due to the withdrawal of money in payment of dividends, according to the report of the Bolivian Institute of Foreign Trade (IBCE) with figures from the Central Bank of Bolivia. Economists suggest that legal security and labour flexibility improve the situation.
