Venezuelan people have eight constituent laws for economic counter-offensive


Caracas, 08 Sep. AVN.- In order to develop a diversified economy in Venezuela, fight the economic war, overcome the oil rentier model and end the financial blockade, Venezuela's president Nicolas Maduro introduced this Thursday before the National Constituent Assembly (ANC, Spanish acronym) a total of eight laws to be consulted and debated with the entire Venezuelan people.

"We are going to close a year with work, with hope, with optimism. Venezuela, yes we can! Let's go with this economic plan of the Constituent Assembly! I have faith, I am sure that this year 2017 we will resume the course of economic recovery and, with the participation of the people, the Constituent Assembly and the economic plan, we will have new victories," he said in a joint radio and television address.

During his speech at the special session of the Constituent Assembly, Maduro presented the Plan for Peace and Economic Prosperity, which includes all the laws handed over to the plenipotentiary power.

"The time has come for the general counter-offensive of the socialist economic model versus the capitalist model of economic warfare. This is the essence of the approach I have come to bring."

During his address, the President condemned the actions taken by opposition leader Julio Borges, who is carrying out an agenda in Europe to challenge Venezuela's institutional order and promote actions against the South American country. He added that Borges must respond to Venezuelan laws for the crime of treason.

The Head of State urged the constituted powers and the Constituent Assembly "justice for peace, so that there is sovereignty, so that there is no impunity," and stressed that in Venezuela "there are no untouchable people."

Julio Borges and Freddy Guevara, activists of the Venezuelan opposition, have recently met with government authorities from Germany, United Kingdom, France and Spain to promote actions against the South American country.

In recent months Borges sent letters to important global banks asking them not to carry out operations with the Venezuelan government, with the aim of stifling the country's economy and thereby overthrowing the government of President Maduro.

Last August President Donald Trump signed an executive order imposing sanctions against the Venezuelan economy by prohibiting negotiations on new debt and capital with the national government and oil company PDVSA, Venezuela's main national industry.

In this scenario, President Maduro denounced that it was difficult for the country to pay the logistics to athletes who have international commitments, so he ordered to make available to these athletes the presidential plane.

Likewise, he stressed that Venezuela managed to overcome a sabotage to purchase medicines and warned that a US bank rejected the payment of resources to buy food to arrange 9,000,000 food boxes of the Local Committees of Supply and Production (Clap).

In the face of the financial blockade imposed by the United States, the top socialist leader tabled the Law for the Promotion and Protection of Foreign Investment in Venezuela, which will seek to boost the attraction of foreign exchange, so that they contribute to the development of the 15 engines of the Bolivarian Economic Agenda.

In this regard, he said there will be rounds of negotiations with bond holders of the Venezuelan public debt in the next two weeks, to face Trump's attack.
