Venezuela's National Assembly on Wednesday passed a partial reform of the Law on Special Contribution for Windfall and Exorbitant Oil Prices in a special meeting that lasted less than one hour.

The bill, introduced by deputies of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) on Tuesday, provides for the redistribution of the tax aliquot and an increase in the delivery of US dollars to the Central Bank of Venezuela (BCV).

The approved reform also empowers the Executive Office to approve exemptions on certain new production and secondary recovery oil projects.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
