Bolivia, a landlocked country in South America, is bordered by Brazil to the north and east, by Argentina and Paraguay to the south, and by Chile and Peru to the west. It is a democratic republic that is divided into nine departments. Its capital city is Sucre; however, the government is based in La Paz. The boliviano (BOB) is the official currency of Bolivia, and the official languages include Spanish and numerous native languages.
Bolivia is rich in natural resources and has the second largest natural gas reserves in South America. Foreign and domestic investments have increased mainly in the construction and infrastructure sector (construction of highways, bridges, buildings, shopping centres). In addition, there is a major project in course for the construction of a cement plant in Oruro with a proposed investment of approximately 245 million United States dollars (USD), and the Bolivian government has recently entered into a construction project of a Research and Development in Nuclear Technology Centre to be set up in El Alto, La Paz with a proposed investment of approximately USD 300 million, which is envisaged to be one of the best nuclear centres in South America. There are also relevant projects for the oil and gas industry related to the construction of a polythene and polypropylene plant, with a significant investment of approximately USD 1 billion, which would be one of the major construction projects in history.
