“The University of Carabobo has a very wide range in the training of professionals in the branch of automotive engineering that must be articulated with the Chinese automotive industry (…) we are working very hard to bring Chinese automobile manufacturing companies to be able to recover our automotive industry, as well as the industrial sector and the port sector, among others,” he noted.

A huge commitment
