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.
Since the Venezuelan government imposed currency and price controls in 2003 property rights have been seriously affected, as the individual's freedom to acquire, use, enjoy and dispose of property has been severely restricted, according to experts.
