Delegations from Venezuela and Suriname have addressed some aspects of interest to strengthen bilateral cooperation in economy and trade, the nation’s media reported today.
The meeting, held yesterday at the Yellow House in Caracas, was attended by Venezuelan Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister for Latin America, Alexander Yanez; and Surinamese Finance Minister, Gillmore Goefdraad, leading the delegation from the two countries.
According to the note from the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry, the meeting is part of the policy of the Bolivarian government to strengthen relations with the Caribbean countries.
This is also an opportunity to seek own and complementary solutions facing the attacks from external factors to destabilize the economy of those countries, Yanez said today.
‘Issues related to civil aeronautics, agricultural cooperation, the list of exports among countries were discussed in order to take advantage of the economic complementarity were analyzed. The possibility of training in export matters was also discussed,’ he said.
The Bolivarian executive suggested to the visiting delegation the use of the financial mechanism of Sucre payment as a formula to hold aggressions in financial matters.
The Venezuelan diplomat informed about possible views of a technical team from Suriname to Venezuelan rice plantations and the establishment of cooperation regarding the storage in Venezuela of Surinamese wheat, as part of an agreement in the agricultural sector.
