Venezuelan government and agriculture sector lack coordination
The national director of the Cereal Division of the National Confederation of Agricultural Producers (Fedeagro) said that the agricultural production sector has been neglected by the government
Carlos Eduardo Albornoz, the national director of the Cereal Division of the National Confederation of Agricultural Producers (Fedeagro), criticized the lack of coordination between the agricultural production sector and the Venezuelan government, which according to him has affected agricultural development.
"The agricultural production sector has been neglected," Fedeagro leader said in an interview with private radio station Unión Radio. He also stated that coffee growers have staged demonstrations rejecting the lack of funding and price adjustments. Corn growers have also problems with the supply of seed, Albornoz reported.
The very early morning after the presidential election (April 15), both candidates requested the National Electoral Council (CNE) to conduct a full audit of the process: one, Henrique Capriles, because he asserts that the election results are different from the ones announced, and the other one, Nicolás Maduro, in order to clear any doubt regarding his victory, and to reinforce his political stance. Nevertheless, as it is already known, President Maduro changed his mind.
