Venezuela to assemble and export exclusive Chery cars to Mercosur
The Ministry of Industries remarked that Venezuela aims at assembling 11,000 cars during its first production year
The information was disclosed by Minister of Industries Ricardo Menéndez, who stressed that the two countries have already entered the agreement where China will no longer assemble the two car models (to be determined soon) so that Venezuela can boost both its economy and exporting capacity.
The minister remarked that Venezuela aims at assembling 11,000 vehicles during its first production year.
Venezuela will address similar proposals in the next Venezuelan-Chinese meeting on cooperation, whose date and place have not been defined yet. The meeting will aim at extending the agreement to other joint ventures with assembly plants in Venezuela and obtaining exclusivity to assemble products for exportation.

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
