Natural gas exports fell by 28 per cent in 2020 due to the drop in hydrocarbon prices caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. According to data from the Bolivian Institute of Foreign Trade (IBCE), between January and November 2020 the country received $1.86 billion for the export of 8.28 million kilos of hydrocarbons. The value is 29% of the $2.6 billion received in 2019 for the export of 8.35 million kilos. In this context, the export outlook is uncertain for 2021, given the resurgence of the disease.
