Additionally, manufacturing and industry account for 15% of Bolivia’s GDP with the processing of food, tobacco, and drinks making up the majority of the factories.

Bolivia’s tourism industry has continued to grow since the 1990s and many businesses in the country cater to the tourism sector. With so many ruins and historic sites dating back to the founders of the Inca Empire, the country is a hot spot for tourist and historians. Isla del Sol, The Andes, and the salt flats bring in thousands of tourists annually and due to substantial growth of tourism to Bolivia’s salt flats, the government has banned lithium mining at Salar de Uyuni and declared in a natural reserve despite a growing demand for lithium.
