Venezuela, Russia, and China continue their efforts to improve bilateral economic relations in support of the Bolivarian recovery program, Venezuelas Vice President Delcy Rodriguez said Monday.
Rodriguez met with Chinese and Russian economic specialists during the final day of a regional Asiatic tour.
“Yesterday at the last stop of our international work day, we met with the deputy governor of Guangdong Province, Ouyang Weimin, to enhance the local economy of both entities,” Delcy wrote on her personal Twitter account.
Rodriguez also met with officials from the Chinese Development Bank and from the Chinese state oil company CNPC during her visit to the region.
She also commented to growing ties to Moscow. “The Bolivarian Government continues to strengthen its bonds of brotherhood with Russia, with the firm intention of strengthening the projects included in the Plan for Economic Recovery, Growth and Prosperity promoted by the national leader,” she added in one of her messages.
Days after the Development Bank of Latin America met with President Nicolas Maduro, researchers and financial specialists were invited to share their insights in an added effort to strengthen bilateral strategic relations.
Russia has also sent a team of economic specialists from its Finance Vice Ministry to Caracas to advise on overcoming the current crisis, it has been reported. Led by Vice Minister Serguéi Storchak, the delegation looks to “provide help to Venezuela in the development of the measures to run the economy in a situation of crisis.”
On Tuesday President Maduro also held a meeting with advisors from the Chinese Center of Economic Research for Development in Miraflores Palace.
Maduro later tweeted about a “productive meeting” in which participants “exchanged ideas on how to advance on an economic revolution that will liberate our productive forces.”
