At the Bolivian event international coffee tasters were present from several countries including South Korea.

According to the en voy the promotion of Bolivian coffee was supported strongly by its government normally via many agencies within the Ministry of Rural Development and Land and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs through the Embassy of Bolivia in Korea.

She noted that there are more than 37,000 coffee producers in her country, adding that the government of Bolivia is exerting its utmost to make Bolivia seen as a producer of high quality coffee.
