In brief: Bolivia

* Bolivia’s President Evo Morales has announced an agreement between Bolivia’s state-run oil company Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales Bolivianos (YPFB) and four local sugar-cane mills - Unagro, Guabirá, Aguaí, and La Bélgica - for YPFB to purchase 150m litres of ethanol for the production of Súper Etanol 92, a new biofuel. Sales of Súper Etanol 92 began in November 2018 as part of efforts to reduce Bolivia’s dependence on gasoline and diesel imports.
