Almost 100% of Venezuelan companies have stopped or reduced production

A survey commissioned by the industrial union and presented on Tuesday (11) points out that 96% of Venezuelan companies paralyzed or decreased their production in the first quarter of 2019, due to blackouts, gasoline shortages and credit restrictions. Of the companies surveyed, "96% did not produce or decrease their production," said Juan Pablo Olalquiaga, president of the Confederation of Venezuelan Industrialists (CONINDUSTRIA), in presenting the study to the press.
