The IMF/World Bank, the Economy and Energy Policy in Bolivia

Bolivia's President Evo Morales made headlines last year when he announced the re-nationalization of Bolivia's natural resources. He also stunned the investment community by letting its last agreement with the IMF expire, and declining to negotiate a new one. Minister of Hydrocarbons and Energy, Carlos Villegas gave an overview of the Bolivian economy as well as a summary of the accomplishments and pending challenges in terms of economic and energy issues in Bolivia.
