He recognized that 2019 was "rough," trying the country at many levels, but concluded optimistically that "the efforts have started giving results."
"In 2019 - we can say it - peace triumphed, it overcame despite the blockade and imperialist aggression, despite the plundering that today undergoes the decaying imperial powers against a dignified and rebellious nation."
He proudly affirmed that Venezuelans and Venezuelans, heirs of Liberators and Liberators of America, will never be overwhelmed.
He predicted that with Petro, the Venezuelan cryptocurrency that was Chávez's dream and today is a reality, the economy of Venezuela will find a dynamic way for the definitive revival in 2020.
He promised that the new year will be full of favorable surprises for the working people, “thinking about strengthening the economy, protecting workers, achieving the goals as the basis of the productive, solid, growing and prosperous model "
