Bolivia Opens Its First State-Owned Computer Assembly Plant

LA PAZ – President Evo Morales inaugurated Bolivia’s first state-owned computer assembly plant, a $60 million project that has the capacity to produce 800 computers per day.

The Quipus plant is in El Alto, a city outside La Paz, and will initially employ 60 technicians trained in China, Morales said.

The computers assembled at the plant will be distributed to public school students, giving them a tool that will expand science knowledge, the president said.

The goal is to assemble 116,000 computers this year.

The government has distributed thousands of laptop computers to students and teachers since 2011.

The government plans to provide scholarships to Bolivia’s best students and teachers so they can earn master’s and doctoral degrees at foreign universities and help the Andean nation improve its educational system, Morales said.
