Caracas, May 26 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez will visit Brazil and Ecuador on June 6 and 7, to reinforce bilateral relations in strategic sectors such as agriculture and industry, Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro said Thursday.
In Brasilia, Chavez and President Dilma Rousseff will return to the meetings that had been held every three months to strengthen links in diverse sectors, and this will be the first since former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva concluded his term in January 2011.
Apart from agreements in agriculture and industry, Caracas and Brasilia are fostering financial and social initiatives and others for the development of border communities.
Referring to Chavez’ visit to Quito on June 7, Maduro explained the meeting would boost strategic fields to achieve sovereignty in energy and industry, as well as knowledge of two countries grouped in the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America.
In addition, ongoing agreements and the implementation of new projects in fishing, mining, and cacao will be checked, the minister said, and recalled that the visits to Brazil and Ecuador were rescheduled because Chavez suffered a knee injury a few days ago.
