General manager of the Venezuelan-American Chamber of Trade and Industry (VenAmCham) Carlos Tejera stressed that both the Venezuelan Government and the private sector must reach an agreement to jointly overcome the troubles facing food production, distribution, and trade companies in Venezuela, in order to regularize their activities.

Tejera told private news TV channel Globovisión that 70-80% of VenAmCham affiliates have reported delays and a reduction in the amount of US dollars they are sold by the Foreign Exchange Administration Commission (Cadivi).

He said that delays in permits and non-domestic production certificates have also hit the food trade chain. "Some firms report delays from three to six months."

Tejara remarked that labor issues have played a role as well. He highlighted "the need to engage in dialogue so as to clearly establish in the Organic Labor Law the protection of food production and transport so as to prevent these activities from being the target of unjustified actions by trade unions."

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
