Production is encouraged in various items in the South of the Lake
He emphasized the area of production, because the South of the Lake has resources in various areas (agriculture, livestock and fishing), which will be incorporated into the food that will be distributed to the people at a fair price.
“That is why we are working together with the people, listening to their proposals, which in addition to contributions also include needs; such as failures in the supply of fuel, in public services and the deterioration of roads; which are concerns in which President Nicolás Maduro has shown willingness to solve, in the midst of the adversities that Venezuela faces in the face of the economic war that does not cease in its attack.
Cedeño refers that on the recent anniversary of CLAP, President Nicolás Maduro instructed the need to encourage the production area, which has motivated the community councils, the various social organizations to present innovative, creative proposals for products and their derivatives. ; in the specific case of bananas, they make preserves, jams and flour.
Various forms of payment will be activated
