Bolivia loses more than $100 million due to Chilean strike
Due to the the strike, some 1,000 Bolivian transporters remained stranded on the border, amid icy temperatures, lack of water and food.
The strike was called by the Chilean Association of Customs Officials in protest of the breach of agreements reached with the Government, including the increase in the number of employees.
Since 2015 the Chilean customs have carried out at least five strikes that halted the Bolivian foreign trade.
The Bolivian Government plans to sue Chile at the World Trade Organization and the Latin American Integration Association for the glaring breach of the Treaty of 1904. ■
