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.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
