President Evo Morales inaugurated the Glass Containers Factory of Bolivia (Envibol), located in the municipality of Zudañez, in the department of Chuquisaca

The new Glass Containers factory in Bolivia, Envibol, opened on Friday by President Evo Morales in Chuquisaca, currently makes possible for nationals to access 147 direct jobs and more than 1,000 indirect jobs.
The head of state stressed that this factory was built with resources of the national government, through the Fund for Industrial Productive Revolution (Finpro).
It is considered by specialists the most modern factory in Latin America, as it has the latest technology to manufacture high quality and lighter products.
A group of Uruguayan experts will train the workers of this state factory until December 31 to guarantee their proper management, Envibol manager Oscar Sandy said in an interview with Bolivia TV program El Pueblo es Noticia.
About 15 specialists, with at least 30 years experience in the field, will train those workers mainly in the handling and care of the machines, as well as identifying the deficiencies the factory may have.

The factory demanded an investment of more than 57 million dollars, and has a production capacity of 130 tons of glass per day to produce beverage bottles and food containers.
