Ricardo Menendez, Vice-President for Planning, announced this Thursday the arrival in Venezuela of technical teams from the Republic of Belarus to evaluate and restore the production capacities of the Veneminsk and Mazven joint ventures, located in the Santa Ines Industrial Complex, in Barinas.
The Belarusian specialists will develop their work agenda in the country under the agreements reached during the VIII High-Level Joint Commission, held in Caracas in December 2021.
At that intergovernmental meeting, the main topic of the industrial cooperation map was the reactivation of the Santa Ines Industrial Complex, the Veneminsk tractor factory, and the Mazven truck factory.
Last January, the People’s Power Minister of Industries and National Production, José Gregorio Biomorgi, met with the Ambassador of the Republic of Belarus, accredited in Venezuela, Andrei Leonidovich Molchan, to evaluate the revitalize plan of the factory.
The authorities agreed on the visit to Venezuela of a technical commission from the Minsk tractor factory, which would travel to the industrial complex to re-establish Veneminsk’s production capacities.
The Belarusian-Venezuelan joint venture “Veneminsk Tractores C.A.” was inaugurated in 2012 with the capacity to manufacture three models of tractors: 62, 89, and 130 horsepower, according to the needs of the agro-industrial sector. Mazven was built for the production of trucks.
