Agencia EFE marks 40 years in Bolivia with photo exhibit in La Paz

La Paz, Dec 6 (efe-epa).- Bolivia's culture minister said the Andean nation has gained global visibility thanks to Agencia EFE, Spain's international news agency, which is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its presence in that country with a photo exhibit in this capital.

La Paz, Dec 6 (efe-epa).- Bolivia's culture minister said the Andean nation has gained global visibility thanks to Agencia EFE, Spain's international news agency, which is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its presence in that country with a photo exhibit in this capital.

During Wednesday's inauguration, Wilma Alanoca congratulated EFE on behalf of Bolivia's president, Evo Morales, and vice president, Alvaro Garcia Linera.

"Bolivia is visible throughout the world thanks to EFE," the minister said at the inauguration of the exhibit, adding that the agency has reported on happenings in the political realm while also portraying "the best of our country."

The exhibit, which contains a selection of 40 large-scale photos by acclaimed photographers such as Martin Alipaz, Jorge Abrego, Javier Mamani, Angel Diaz and Manuel Perez Barriopedro, looks back at key episodes in recent Bolivian history and serves as a record of EFE's daily work over the past four decades.

Those events include the "Bolivian gas war," a social confrontation over the then-government's natural gas policies that came to a head in 2003; the constituent assembly of 2006-2007; official proceedings concerning landlocked Bolivia's demand that Chile negotiate over sea access; and floods in the country's northern Amazon region.

The "EFE in Bolivia: 40 years in 40 photos" exhibit at the San Francisco Cultural Center and Museum in downtown La Paz is sponsored by Spanish oil major Repsol, Bolivia-based multi-lateral financial institution Fonplata, Spanish engineering company Tecnicas Reunidas, Bolivian banking company Bisa and Bolivian airline Amaszonas.

It was inaugurated Wednesday by EFE's director-general for the Southern Cone, Pedro Damian Diego Perez; EFE's bureau chief in Bolivia, Luis Angel Reglero; Bolivian Culture Minister Wilma Alanoca; Bolivian deputy Foreign Minister Carmen Almendras; and that country's deputy institutional and consular management minister, Raul Castro.

The exhibit will be on display until Dec. 21.

Founded in 1939, EFE is the leading Spanish-language news agency and the fourth-biggest overall.

With more than 3,000 professionals working in 120 countries, EFE generates nearly 3 million items per year in terms of text, photo, audio, video and multimedia.

In addition to its Spanish service, EFE produces content in Portuguese, English and Arabic.
