La Paz, Jan 3 (Prensa Latina) The Bolivian extended Cabinet agreed to increase the efforts to keep the levels of public investments as the engine for national economy, besides improving the struggle against corruption.
Presidential Minister Alfredo Rada reported in a press conference that Bolivia’s successful economic model is based on public investment, which exceeded US$8 billion in 2018, 25 times more than in 2005.
On the other hand, the minister said that the enlarged cabinet also addressed the issue of corruption and determined to strengthen the fight against that crime at government levels, after the good results obtained during 2018.
He also stressed the need to improve public management and service to the population, as a policy against bureaucracy.
The recommendation is that such public service attention should be given thinking about the citizens’ comfort, he commented.
Finally, he pointed out that the Bolivian authorities decided to maintain good coordination with social movements for decision-making and implementation of public policies.
This government belongs to the social movements, because it is what explains the good results achieved throughout the period that began in 2006, he concluded.
