During a new Productive Wednesday – Industrial Engine Chapter in Caracas, President Nicolas Maduro announced the creation of Engine number 18. Subsequently added to those already existing in the Bolivarian Economic Schedule and whose purpose is to meet the fundamental needs of the entrepreneurial sector while seeking to boost the country’s real economy.
Alongside the People’s Power Minister of Industries and National Production, Jorge Arreaza, the president took the opportunity to verify the production levels of the national industry. Therefore, the Corporacion Socialista Del Cemento (CSC), from Cerro Azul Plant, located in Monagas, was the appropriate scenario to learn about the New Socialist Business Management Model, carried out by the board of the cement industry led by Neptali Acosta Prieto.
In this sense, the first authority of the CSC informed the national Executive about the progress that the cement industry has been making hand in hand with the Productive Councils of Workers (CPTT), and highlighted the increase in cement production of more than 260%, contributing directly to the promotion of the Construction Engine. He also highlighted the relevant transformations that the cement factory has undergone. These intended to combat the blockade and criminal aggression against the national economy and the Venezuelan people.
Acosta Prieto emphasized that despite the pandemic, the CSC increased the commercialization and dispatch of this construction material by more than 380% in a simple way, at a fair, solidary, and easily accessible price for all Venezuelans. This way, he ratified what the Venezuelan president stated that 2021 is the first year of sustained growth of a solid, open, and incipient, non-oil, and diversified economy.
Finally, the president of the “Corporacion Socialista Del Cemento,” Neptali Acosta Prieto, informed that the industry is ready to start the process of exporting this product to countries in The Caribbean in the next few days to contribute to the economic development of the nation.
In the same thread, Alejandro Souquett, a member of the Board of Directors of the cement industry, spoke of the most relevant production processes to obtain the final product, a 42.5 Kg bag of cement in a high-quality presentation with an export seal.
