TODAY VENEZUELA NEWS – The Venezuelan Confederation of Industries (Conindustria) claimed to have taken part in dialogue meetings with relevant authorities since 2014. However, they stressed that their “proposals have not been implemented because they conflict with a centralized and controlled model.”
In an official communiqué, Conindustria highlighted that they have voiced the need for a change in public policies aimed at increasing stock, production and distribution levels.
In the confederation’s view, “factors that hit production capacity derive from wrong public policies hindering investment, access to raw materials, packaging materials, and spare parts for maintenance of the industrial park.”
Conindustria has deemed it necessary “to increase production of food and medicines to meet Venezuelans’ demand, as well as to raise the number of plastic, glass and metal containers, inks, glues, spare parts for machinery and vehicles; fabric and clothing products; cement and rebars to build both houses and factories.”
