Last May, Bolivia's and Portugal's governments signed a scientific and technological cooperation agreement to support establishing the assembly plant.

The ministry said there is no exact information about the resources to be invested in the facility because studies are still being conducted.

"A technical team is working to determine the requirements, capacity and production volume according to Bolivia's needs," Aguilar added.
