High natural gas and mineral prices propelled Bolivia’s 5% GDP average growth from 2006-2013. At the helm of Bolivia’s success is its wildly popular president, Evo Morales, who has recently won his third term with more than 60% of the vote, and the Minister of Economy and Public Finance, Luis Alberto Arce Catacora, a central figure in planning the country’s growing economy.
At International House, Minister of Economy and Public Finance Luis Alberto Arce Catacora will speak about Bolivia’s and Morales’s recent accomplishments and the challenges that lie ahead.
Free and open to the public.
