At the Solydes Foundation we understand that culture is a way to promote participation and express and respect diversity, and this is why it is a key element of the national and local development strategy. Based on this firm belief, SOLYDES has decided to support cultural activities including publishing books by Bolivian researchers and artists.
El singani es un destilado de uva moscatel de Alejandría que tiene varios cientos de años de tradición en su producción y consumo. Hoy, el singani es un patrimonio cultural de Bolivia, y su denominación de origen ya está preestablecida. El libro “Singani”, apoyado por la Fundación Solydes es un libro de fotos de, principalmente, las zonas productoras del destilado más importante de Bolivia. A la vez, es un homenaje a los productores de uva de dichas regiones. La obra fue realizada por los autores Patricio Crooker y Rita del Solar, con textos de Agustín Echalar.Download Publication
Technology is vital to the economy, as technological innovation gives countries a better chance of increasing their competitiveness in international markets. Businesses today need to adapt constantly to keep up with the new technologies that are changing the world and leading to globalization. The Solydes Foundation has been providing support for studies of the business technology ecosystem in Bolivia. These studies are a useful input for the analysis that businesses need to engage in and a contribution to assess the current situation in our country and the steps that need to be taken in the future.Download Publication 2019
The last specialized catalogue of Bolivian stamps was published back in 2007. No compilation of Bolivian stamps had been produced since then to enable philately enthusiasts and traders to organize their collections and stocks, find out real market values, learn how to identify the varieties of each stamp and have a complete catalogue of all known stamps and their varieties, organized with a simple numbering system. The Solydes Foundation has provided support to Daniel González Fernández, President of the La Paz Philatelic Society, to publish a new Specialized Catalogue of Bolivian Stamps and thus revitalize philately in Bolivia.Download Publication
