Rodríguez: This year Venezuela must enter the BRICS

The vice president highlighted in Anzoátegui the economic advances that the business sector has had.

The Executive Vice President of the Republic, Delcy Rodríguez, led the event of the National Council of Productive Economy, in which she met with businessmen and producers from different sectors of the Anzoátegui state, an event in which she revealed that this year Venezuela must be part of the BRICS.

During her speech, the senior official highlighted that “it is official,” and that our country had to enter that bloc last year, when membership was expanded.

In this sense, he stressed that the Brics have already surpassed the G-7 Group. “The Brics bloc has already surpassed the G-7, the group of Seven, by far. And who is in the Brics? Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and others have already joined, and Venezuela was going to enter this year, officially,” he stressed.

He announced that the country, for the first time in the history of the Republic, will begin to export gas. “There will be surprises in gas, very soon Venezuela will start exporting gas for the first time in its history,” said Rodríguez.

Call to diversify the economy

The Executive Vice President called on national businessmen to diversify the country's economy, put aside the export model and take advantage of the benefits of national production. “The country has to import fewer imports and more national production, diversify the economy and we have achieved this with the blockade, imagine if the criminal sanctions were not there,” she said.

She highlighted that Venezuela, with the policies of the Bolivarian government, has managed to overcome the blockade and today can offer loans for large companies and small businesses, so she is sure that the induced crisis and the consequences of the sanctions can be overcome.

The National Council of Productive Economy - Eastern Region - held in the Diego Bautista Urbaneja municipality in the Anzoátegui state, hosted 17 of the country's 21 governors, accompanied by representatives of Fedecamaras, Coindustria, authorities of the economy of the east of the country and businessmen
