Speaker of the Latin American Parliament Rodrigo Cabezas informed that some economic adjustments are to be implemented in 2013 in Venezuela. The actions will be announced gradually by the relevant ministers.

Adjustments may include changes in the price of some goods and services, and the foreign exchange rate, as well as some fiscal reforms and steps to curb speculation.

The former finance minister pointed out that "the main goal is to preserve economic growth as it is vital for economic policy-making."

The deputy also suggested that devaluation should be used as a tool to improve the competitiveness of the Venezuelan economy in the international arena through industrialization.
