Bolivia: An Overview [Updated May 16, 2022]   [open pdf - 568KB]

From the Document: "After experiencing instability following the ouster of populist President Evo Morales (2005-2019), Bolivia remains politically polarized but has begun to recover economically under President Luis Arce. Arce, Morales' former finance minister, took office in November 2020 after a first-round victory in October 2020 elections in which his Movement Toward Socialism (MAS) party maintained a legislative majority. High natural gas prices related to the Ukraine conflict have helped Bolivia's economy recover from the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. U.S. relations with Bolivia remain challenging, in part because of Bolivia's 2008 expulsion of the U.S. Ambassador and U.S. law enforcement and development agencies."
