The information was released on Thursday by the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, from the Miraflores Palace, where he led a meeting with his economic team. He described the achievements as "a virtuous tax and tributary balance" reached in the first wave of the program to create a new equilibrium from the economy "martyred, assaulted and affected" by the economic war and the unilateral sanctions that have hovered over the country.
The head of state said that in the course of this week, the first fiscal line has advanced in ways that had not been achieved in 5 years. "The sovereign bolivars that are circulating in the country are based on national wealth and the collection of taxes."
He added that among other benefits, the Economic Recovery Program has managed to get money circulating out of the economy and therefore working against inflation in the country, resources that then enter state coffers to invest in education, housing and health.
