Recently, President Nicolás Maduro reported that with this measure, Venezuelans will be able to become investors in companies such as CANTV, Movilnet, those linked to petrochemicals, mixed oil and gas companies, and those from Guayana.
“We are going to expand the share package so that investors can go and get involved. We need capital for the development of all public companies, we need technology, new markets and we are going to move forward,” he indicated two weeks ago while explaining that the US and European blockade has heavily affected the availability of much needed capital for keeping efficient operations in many public entities.
