Bolivia achieved political stability after President Evo Morales introduced reforms in 2006 involving the privatization of the oil and gas industry, major modifications to the countryโ€™s constitution, strengthening the economy and the implementation of various social programs. Public debt was a primary government concerns and the political reforms reduced debt from 94% of GDP in 2003 to less than 40% in 2013.
The Bolivian insurance industry grew at a CAGR of 15.7%. Industry growth was supported by strong performance in the life and non-life segments, as well economic recovery following the global financial crisis in 2008โ€“2009. The non-life segmentโ€™s growth was mostly driven by the motor insurance and marine aviation and transit insurance categories, which grew at CAGRs of 17.0% and 16.3% respectively in 2013.”
