70% of the National budget for 2017 will be directed to social investment, as has been done since the beginning of the Bolivarian Revolution and whose policy has allowed to contribute in guaranteeing the fundamental rights of the people, said this Thursday the President of the Republic, Nicolas Maduro.

During his speech in the “Dossier” program, broadcast by Venezolana de Television, the Head of State commented that the support for social programs will continue, despite the situation of an economic war posed by the right wing sectors against the Venezuelans.

“A 70% of the 2017 budget is for social investment, both of the social economic project of the new economy, as of the missions, great missions, education, housing, health, our old folks,” he said.
