Maduro explained that "Today we are in a position of new advantage in the face of destabilizing factors, today we are making progress in stabilizing the exchange rate, in stabilizing the definitive recovery of wages, pensions , the fair prices agreed, today we are advancing on several fronts, we have new advantages, but we still need a lot to achieve a definitive victory for happiness, stability, economic equilibrium, growth and prosperity of our country, " he said.
He emphasized that there are great surprises about Petro in the coming days. "The program of economic recovery is made in Venezuela, with the advice and support of many people around the world, but it is not a program like in Argentina imposed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), a shameful program that Macri has imposed to the Argentine people.
