Speaker of the Latin American Parliament Rodrigo Cabezas informed that some economic adjustments are to be implemented in 2013 in Venezuela. The actions will be announced gradually by the relevant ministers.

Adjustments may include changes in the price of some goods and services, and the foreign exchange rate, as well as some fiscal reforms and steps to curb speculation.

The former finance minister pointed out that "the main goal is to preserve economic growth as it is vital for economic policy-making."

The deputy also suggested that devaluation should be used as a tool to improve the competitiveness of the Venezuelan economy in the international arena through industrialization.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
