Blockades in Sipe Sipe generate daily losses of $2.43 million

For each day of the blockade in Sipe Sipe, the productive sector of Cochabamba loses around Bs 17 million ($2.43 mn), which puts the desired reactivation of the departmental economy in the red, according to the Federation of Private Entities of Cochabamba (FEPC). The conflict for the school basket began two months ago, and during that time the road to Oruro and La Paz has been blocked three times, where the most significant damage is the heavy-transport sector since they are in charge of taking the Bolivian exports to the Chilean ports.
