"Private sector has its place in this economy"
The Venezuelan Finance Minister remarked that government policies have focused on economic growth
"In the next six years, which will be under the government of President (Hugo) Chávez, we will have growth which will enable Venezuela to leap up to independence, socialism and superpower of the great homeland dreamed by (Liberator Simón) Bolívar and (Cuban hero José) Martí," said Minister of Planning and Finance Jorge Giordani.
The minister added that government policies have focused on the domestic economic growth and all that leads to the estimates for the second half of 2012, AVN quoted.
"The private sector has a place in this economy. This sector has a place to produce, not to speculate; it is even contemplated in the Constitution. What cannot be permitted is monopoly and speculation," he vouched.
Giordani recounted the objectives set in the government plan for 2013-2019, submitted to the National Electoral Council (CNE) by President Chávez: consolidating independence; continue building of Bolivarian socialism; turning Venezuela into a superpower; stimulating and favoring a multi-center, pluri-polar world, and preserving life on planet Earth.
Luis Jiménez Alfaro seems to have hidden under the rocks. The last time he was seen was on April 2006 walking calmly around Simón Bolívar International Airport of Maiquetía, located nearby Caracas. At that time, more than five tons of cocaine arrived in Mexico in an airplane which took off from Venezuela, and his name featured as a missing piece of the puzzle of one of the most massive drug shipments that has been witnessed in the Western Hemisphere.
