  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On March 8, 2018, Bolivian President Evo Morales announced the country would begin ethanol production. The ethanol mandate will require that gasoline be blended with at least 10 percent ethanol beginning in 2018, then rise to 25 percent in 2025. Bolivia will produce ethanol from sugar cane and sorghum. Both government and private sector are supportive of the program that will have a positive impact on the Bolivian economy. The government sees ethanol production as an opportunity to substitute gasoline imports.
