The reasons have to do with the international expansion of the brand “made in Bolivia” which has gained prestige in certain accounts for their quality and competitive price. It also has to do with the increasing regional demand for goods, product boom Economic lived in recent years and finally also due to innovative initiatives of Bolivian entrepreneurs.

  1. Por que no ofrecen productos Bolivianos con Amazon?
    Pedir a Bolivia Mall el envió cuesta 4 veces más que el producto.
    Perú, ayuda a exportar a USA, Bolivia no puede.

    1. Muy cierto. Antes podíamos acogernos al ATPDEA, con este gobierno se dificulto la cosa, hasta una empresa super exitosa que vendía en NY como Millma tuvo que quebrar … Muchos bolivianos aun no entienden las ventajas de ofrecer en Amazon, etc. aunque también debemos decir que el gobierno no ayuda y mas aun aumenta la burocracia y lentitud de estos tramites … Hoy NO somos competitivos y tampoco las reglas de juego, es decir impuestos, cuotas de exportación, doble aguinaldo, contrabando, etc., hacen muy difícil que podamos exportar de manera competitiva. es una nueva alternativa … incipiente ayuda a PyMES, pero es un avance …
