Chávez's geopolitical achievements in the oil field

In the first year of his mandate, Chávez promoted some far-reaching measures at the 2000 summit of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), such as the price band, economic, environmental and social policies, while calling for the coordination of strategies to balance production.

Thanks to his oil policy, the Venezuelan president made a decisive contribution to bringing OPEC out of a deep crisis and increasing oil prices by a thousand percent during his term in office, thus achieving "a fair price for producers and consumers" on the international market.

Thanks to Chavez's initiative to create Petrocaribe on June 29, 2005, oil alliances were established between Venezuela and some Caribbean countries.
