VP Maduro: Economic actions will continue
According to Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, opposition sectors "are wailing because the exchange control applied them a tourniquet"
According to the senior officer, this year the domestic economy will grow at least 6%. "Our people trust in the policies and the economic project of the revolution," he commented.
During an inspection of a canned food manufacturing plant in Zulia state, west Venezuela, he referred that some opposition sectors "are wailing because the exchange control applied them a tourniquet."
"Now, US dollars are used for our people's development," he summed up.
The can of tuna, formerly a fairly normal pantry staple, has long been missing from stores in Venezuela, especially the domestic brands. When tuna cans, imported or domestic, do occasionally show up on store shelves, prices have increased several fold.
