Bolivia

The structure of the Bolivian economy is easily affected by international prices because agriculture, mining products and primary commodities such as natural gas account for roughly 80 percent of the country's total exports. Bolivia has an abundance of zinc, lead, lithium and other natural resources, and as Japan is one of the major export destinations for zinc and lead, the commercial and economic relationships between the two countries have grown strong. The uneven distribution of wealth has persisted for a long time historically, and the income disparity in Bolivia is today the greatest of any country in South America. With more than 45 percent of population belonging to the poorest class, the income level of Bolivia is the lowest among all the countries in South America. JICA's support to Bolivia is primarily focused on: 1) social development centering on human resource development, 2) improving productivity through regional development and 3) sustainable energy development.
