Liquid import falls 60.7% until May

From January to May this year, Bolivia imported fuels (petrol and diesel) worth $177.6 million, compared to $452.4 million that were disbursed in a similar period of 2019, representing a drop of 60.7%, according to official data. The decline is due to reduced fluid consumption in March, April and May as a result of the health emergency and the total or rigid quarantine decreed by the transitional government to combat the pandemic of the new coronavirus or COVID-19.
