Bolivia: New Video Campaign Seeks to Boost Tourism

‘Bolivia Awaits You’ is the name of a promotional campaign recently launched by the government of Bolivia. The campaign seeks to boost tourism and focuses on a promotional spot to be broadcast on television networks [es] in the Americas and Europe. It also aims to promote domestic tourism through the United by Tourism programme [es].

Bolivia's government announced that it will invest 20 million US dollars in the next five years in order to strengthen and promote community-based tourism [es] that will primarily benefit indigenous communities. The website is part of the campaign. It concentrates information as well as touristic links of interest.

Netizens immediately reacted to the campaign on social media platforms.

Juan Pablo Apaza commented [es] on the Viceministry of Tourism's Facebook page [es]:
