Morales calls for national dialogue in Bolivia in post Covid-19 phase
Buenos Aires, June 25 (Prensa Latina) Former Bolivian President Evo Morales called on Thursday for national dialogue in that country to reconcile an agenda that allows the reactivation of economic, social and political life once the Covid-19 pandemic has been overcome.
On Twitter, Morales pointed out that the space for consultation must include the State, productive and social actors 'to define the post-pandemic economic agenda.'
'We all have a huge responsibility to guarantee stability, production and jobs in the face of the crisis,' he added.
Different sectors of Bolivian society are focused on economic reactivation; however, the rapid spread of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus keep away the normalization of life in the Bolivia.
Only in the last 24 hours, the health authorities confirmed 1,098 new Covid-19 cases, for a total of 27,489 since the first infected with the disease appeared in early March.
Given the aforementioned scenario, experts consider that Bolivia could suffer the greatest contraction of its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at the end of 2020.
According to the de facto government's Minister of Economy Jose Luis Parada, GDP could decrease by 5.9 percent, the lowest level in the history of Bolivia.
