The challenge of the new president Luis Arce Catacora is to reverse the situation of several indicators, such as net international reserves (NIR), exports and income, which had already been deteriorating since 2014. Official figures from the Ministry of Economy show a slowing down economy to 2.9% in 2019. 2020 foresees a negative rate of 6.2%. The Central Bank of Bolivia (BCB) reflect that as of October 2020, NIR stood at 5.58 billion dollars.
