Bolivia is Open for Your Business.

Services provided for U.S. Companies by the U.S. Commercial Service

Every year, the U.S. Commercial Service and Global Markets Division of the International Trade Administration (ITA) helps thousands of companies export U.S. goods and services worth billions of dollars. The Economic and Commercial Office (part of the Economic/Political/Commercial Section of the U.S. Embassy) in Bolivia works closely and regularly with the U.S. Commercial Service office in Colombia to provide assistance to U.S. companies wishing to enter or expand business in the Bolivian market. Let us help you find the best opportunities for your business in Bolivia.

Proven Trade Expertise. The global network of U.S. Commercial Service (USCS) trade professionals is located throughout the United States and in U.S. Embassies and Consulates in nearly 80 countries. In countries such as Bolivia, where the USCS has no presence, the State Department Economic and Commercial Office of the U.S. Embassy draws on the specialized advice and experience of a nearby CS post to better assist U.S. business clients. Whether you’re looking to make your first export sale or expand your business in Bolivia, we offer the trade counseling, market intelligence, business matchmaking, and commercial diplomacy you need to connect with lucrative business opportunities. In addition, we will help you to develop trade finance and insurance strategies that align with your particular business objectives and help you complete your export transaction.

Following is a list of our general assistance areas. Our trade professionals will work with you to identify and tailor the right mix of U.S. Commercial Service capabilities to achieve your exporting goals. Contact your U.S. Commercial Service trade professional in Bolivia for details.
