Remittances from abroad reported an increase of 12.9% compared to June with $94.7 million

According to a report from the Central Bank of Bolivia (BCB), the flow of remittances in July was $97.4 million, 12.9% higher than that registered in June, which was $86.3 million, and that of May, which reported $53.9 million. The drop in remittances recorded in previous months was due to the cessation of activities due to the COVID – 19 quarantine, which absorbs a large amount of migrant labour (construction, hotel services and care of persons, among the most relevant).
