The draft bill is vital in the scenario caused by the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States Government on this nation, the president of the Permanent Commission on Finances and Economic Development in Parliament, Jesus Faria, said.

In recent statements to Hinterlaces website, the Venezuelan lawmaker and economist highlighted the objective of creating a new national economic system, beyond dependence on oil exports, moving towards diversification and boosting new production chains.

The expert said that Special Economic Zones have been implemented in many countries, with success in attracting investments, generating jobs, and increasing production and technological development.

In Venezuela, there are Special Economic Zones in the states of Lara (Palavecino and Iribarren), Tachira (San Antonio-Ureña), Falcon (Paraguana), Cojedes (Tinaquillo-San Carlos) and Miranda (Guarenas-Guatire) so far.

The National Assembly will also debate the agreement that supports the implementation of the Constitutional Anti-Blockade Act, approved by the former National Constituent Assembly last year.

This law aims to protect investments in Venezuela from the effects of the US economic, commercial and financial blockade.
