Bolivia: Restrictions on the Import of Used Clothing

Categories: Latin America, Bolivia, Economics & Business, Protest

Beginning on April 21, the Bolivian government placed restrictions on the import of used clothing [1]. After an agreement was reached with this sector, the deadline soon passed much to the pleasure of national companies that produce new clothing. Mario Duran of Palabras Libres [ES] speculates that the deadline will not end the debate, because many in this used clothing sector will be asking for a two-year extension of the deadline citing that the government did not hold its end of the bargain.
