The annual rate of economic growth in Bolivia accelerated to 4% in 1993 more than double that of the previous year, the economy thus recovered the growth rate recorded in 1990-1991. At the same time, inflation was brought down to slightly more than 9%, its lowest level in 17 years, despite the fact that the endemic fiscal deficit rose to 6% of output. All of this was helped considerably by a substantial inflow of resources from abroad, equivalent to around 14% of output, which financed a huge balance-of-payments deficit on current account and an increase in international reserves amounting to 2% of gross domestic product (GDP).
