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.

As late as Tuesday, February 25, there was some visible response from Gabriela Ramírez's office. Representatives of the Office of the Ombudswoman would visit independent human rights watch groups to find what happened in connection with repression of protests. That day, they visited NGO Provea. The next day, they met with the attorneys of NGO Venezuelan Criminal Forum. They pursued specific data because -they argued- no claims of human rights violations of demonstrators had been filed with the Office of the Ombudswoman.
