“The path of the construction of special economic zones in Venezuela is beginning to be taken, as a path to diversify the economy and to expand the productive forces of Venezuela, linked to the high technology of this new era,” President Maduro highlighted.

A MOU, a path to walk

This Saturday, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and the People's Republic of China signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the National Superintendency of the Special Economic Zones of Venezuela and the Research Center for the Special Economic Zones of Shenzhen University; this document has to do with the field of cooperation, development and modernization of special economic zones.

The tweet reads, "President Nicolás Maduro stated in an interview with Xinhua channel that relations between Venezuela and China are at their peak. Maduro stressed that the basis of cooperation is strategic partnership, mutual understanding and similar positions on many issues."

In the case of Venezuela, with the Special Economic Zones a model of sovereign economic development and national production is strengthened that guarantees the productive chain, legal security, social justice and environmentally sustainable means.

In this sense, the South American nation has taken fundamental steps to strengthen these zones, with the promulgation of the Organic Law of Special Economic Zones (LOZEE, acronym in Spanish), to regulate the creation, organization, operation, administration and development of Special Economic Zones.

This stop in the city of Shanghai takes place after the successful visit to Shenzhen.

President Maduro, arrived at the Hongqiao International Airport in the city of Shanghai, where he was received by authorities from the Foreign Affairs Office of the Asian country and the municipal government.

The executive vice president, Delcy Rodríguez, the ambassador of Venezuela in China, Giuseppe Yofreda, the deputy Nicolás Maduro Guerra and the Consul General of Venezuela in Shanghai, Atilio Villasmil, attended the reception of the president, who is traveling together with the first lady, Cilia Flores.

President Maduro, a strong will

"China and Venezuela, enjoying friendly ties and sharing a common destiny, are both committed to peace, development, and cooperation. Between China and Venezuela, there is an exemplary relationship," he said in an official statement.

"I believe the ties between the governments and people of China and Venezuela are ties of mutual trust, true brotherhood, and cooperation for shared development," President Maduro said.

"The route President Xi Jinping has proposed is uniting people in all aspects -- economy, trade, culture -- and is laying the foundation to leave behind the old world of colonialism and imperialism," Maduro pointed out and recalled China's actions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We have a lot to thank China for. During the pandemic, had it not been for China, given the blockade against Venezuela by U.S. imperialism, neither medications nor sanitary items would have arrived, nor would the vaccines," he said.

China's support for the South American country has been essential, given Venezuela's struggle under over 950 illegal sanctions imposed by the U.S. and other Western powers.

"It is only now, in the 21st century, after so many centuries of struggles, that we see the prospect of a world free from imperialism or colonialism."

Dozens of emerging nations are helping humanity reunite, and regain its right to happiness, equality, freedom, and democracy, he said, hailing China as at the forefront of those efforts.

In a message to the Chinese people, Maduro called for building a homeland for all humanity, "where we can meet, recognize each other, and take the path of development, peace, and cooperation."
