Industry Minister Ricardo Menendez underlined the importance of the project and the need to continue and build it up for the benefit of the Venezuelan nation with a view to ensuring the industrial and agricultural security of the country the way President Hugo Chavez wanted it. He was also thankful for the Belarusian side for the support that has been rendered and is being rendered in this regard.
