“We came from a terrible inflation. Today Venezuela still suffers from inflation, but we have come out of the hyperinflation mechanism. In recent months the Venezuelan people have seen that there is no longer hyperinflation, although their inflation numbers undoubtedly continue to impact.

These revenues will be used to use the Workers ‘Compensation and Remuneration System, that is, to restore the workers’ Compensation System, ”said Rodríguez.
Then he emphasized: “This law removes the veil of the blockade and offers a mechanism so that both national and international investors can have a safe development of their investments in the country, these will be income for Venezuela.”
