National Government proposes to create Binational Economic Zone on the Colombian-Venezuelan border

«We have studied the creation of a Binational Economic Zone on the borders between Venezuela and Colombia, in order to establish a balance in relation to import and export taxes, so that commercial activity can take place in conditions of equality and reciprocity,» announced this Thursday the executive vice president of the Republic, Delcy Rodríguez.

The statements were offered by Rodríguez during a meeting with the Venezuela-Colombia Exploratory and Commercial Mission where she stressed that the proposal for the creation of a Binational Economic Zone on the borders, announced by President Nicolás Maduro, «will promote commercial dynamism between both nations and will achieve a matrix of equal exports.”
