Our Ambassador in La Paz maintains regular contact with high-level representatives in the Movement for Socialism (MAS), the party of the new President of Bolivia, Luis Arce. This includes conversations since the 18 October elections regarding the new Administration's initial plans for government. The Ambassador also attended the Presidential inauguration on 8 November, and an audience for the international community with the Vice-President elect on 7 November. Further contact will take place once all government positions have been appointed.
