Foreign debt – Deuda externa

El Diario:

Foreign debt grew under MAS administration

  • For the legislator, those responsible for the current foreign debt are former President Evo Morales and his then Minister of Economy, Luis Arce

Before the announcement of President Luis Arce to request the cancellation of the national foreign debt before the United Nations Organization (UN), the deputy for the Citizen Community (CC) alliance Miguel Roca stated that this debt corresponds, for the most part, to to the years of management of the Movement to Socialism (MAS).

The parliamentarian pointed out that during the MAS government there was the longest period of indebtedness in which the country’s external debt increased and now an attempt is being made to beg for this debt from international organizations.

He argued that those responsible for the current foreign debt are former President Evo Morales and his then Minister of Economy, Luis Arce, who is now trying to alleviate this obligation.

“Now they have the country with a debt of almost 10 billion dollars, most of the debt was contracted by Evo Morales and Arce Catacora, and now the president is going to beg, as he would say,” said the parliamentarian.

From the ruling party, Deputy Juanito Angulo said that President Arce’s efforts seek to alleviate the State’s debt after the efforts of former opposition presidents, who were in charge of increasing the country’s debt.

“Our president raises the relief of the foreign debt, it is what the governments of the day have caused, the governments of Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada, the Government of Tuto Quiroga or when Mr. Carlos Mesa was president who left us a beggar country a country beggar,” he indicated.

He questioned that the ex-presidents have resorted to resources from international credits to sustain current spending and to pay the salaries and wages of public officials.

During his speech before the UN General Assembly, President Arce proposed the realization of agreements with multilateral financial organizations for refinancing or relief of foreign debt and that concessional loans be activated, design and implement medium and long-term measures, to guarantee a 2030 Development Agenda.

Deuda externa creció en administración del MAS

  • Para el legislador, los responsables de la actual deuda externa son el expresidente Evo Morales y su entonces ministro de Economía, Luis Arce

Ante el anuncio del presidente Luis Arce de solicitar la condonación de la deuda externa nacional ante la Organización de las Naciones Unidas (ONU), el diputado por la alianza Comunidad Ciudadana (CC) Miguel Roca manifestó que esta deuda corresponde, en su mayor parte, a los años de gestión del Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS).

El parlamentario señaló que durante el gobierno del MAS se registró el mayor periodo de endeudamiento en que se incrementó la deuda externa del país y ahora se intenta mendigar esta deuda ante organismos internacionales.

Sostuvo que los responsables de la actual deuda externa son el expresidente Evo Morales y su entonces ministro de Economía, Luis Arce, quien ahora intenta que se alivie esta obligación.

“Ahora tienen al país con una deuda de casi 10.000 millones de dólares, la mayor parte de la deuda la contrajeron Evo Morales y Arce Catacora, y ahora el presidente va a mendigar, como diría él”, manifestó parlamentario.

Desde el oficialismo, el diputado Juanito Angulo manifestó que las gestiones del presidente Arce buscan aliviar la deuda del Estado tras las gestiones de expresidentes de la oposición, quienes se encargaron de incrementar la deuda del país.

“Nuestro presidente plantea el alivio a la deuda externa, es lo que han ocasionado los gobiernos de turno, los gobiernos de Gonzalo Sánchez de Lozada, el Gobierno de Tuto Quiroga o cuando fue presidente el señor Carlos Mesa que nos dejó un país mendigo un país limosnero”, indicó.

Cuestionó que los exmandatarios hayan recurrido a recursos procedentes de créditos internacionales para sostener el gasto corriente y para el pago de sueldos y salarios de funcionarios públicos.

Durante su intervención ante la Asamblea General de la ONU, el presidente Arce planteó la realización de acuerdos con organismos financieros multilaterales para refinanciamiento o alivio de la deuda externa y que se activen préstamos concesionales, diseñen y ejecuten medidas de mediano y largo plazo, para garantizar una Agenda de Desarrollo 2030.
