Daily loss of $US 5 mn warned due to landslides in Bolivia

The governor’s office in Santa Cruz warned of losses of around $5.2 million daily, due to the collapse of part of the road that connects Santa Cruz with Cochabamba, in spite of the fact that a provisional crossing has been set up. Luis Alberto Alpire, Secretary of Productive Development of the Governor’s Office, explained that an alternative route, such as the old road, could not be used due to a blockade by traders.
