While private enterprises are being pressured by the Venezuelan Government to avoid increasing prices upon devaluation of the bolivar, state-run industries are making adjustments in their prices based on the new foreign exchange rate.

This is the case of the Venezuelan basic industries in Guayana, northeast Venezuela, whose prices have been increased by 46.5%.

Entrepreneurs confirmed that Sidor adjusted prices up. They added that the price of the products paid prior to the devaluation but that have not been dispatched shall be recalculated based on the new forex rate, VEB 6.30 per US dollar.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
