Bolivia and USAID

Taken Question
Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
May 1, 2013


QUESTION: Please give the annual amount of aid programmed in Bolivia. Have there been diplomatic communications about the announcement in Bolivia, regarding personnel, operations, etc, and what sort of timeline?

ANSWER: USAID's budget for FY'11 was $26.7 million.

There are 9 Americans and 37 Foreign Service Nationals (Bolivians) working at USAID/Bolivia.

After the May 1 announcement by President Morales, the Bolivian Foreign Minister called the Embassy to officially inform us of the decision to expel USAID and said USAID would be given a “reasonable” amount of time to end operations. The Embassy has not received a diplomatic note and no further details regarding a timeline were given.
