In August, the Bolivian government expressed condolences over the losses caused by floods and mudslides in several provinces in China. The Chinese government offered US$50,000 assistance in cash to the Bolivian government to help it put out the massive forest fire. In November, NPC Chairman Wu Bangguo sent a congratulatory message to new President of the Chamber of Senators Rene Martínez on his election.
