Jose Manuel Gonzalez and the Importance of Politics

Jose Manuel Gonzalez is an agricultural businessman in Venezuela. He was the FEDECAMARAS president and currently he is the deputy to the National Assembly, Guarico State. He gave an opinion on his two experiences that were successive in Public Service from the angle of two areas that are dissimilar but complementary. It is his active entrepreneurship married to politics. Jose Manuel Gonzales gave an example of the agriculture sector where the country produces over 500,000 tons of rice and corn at 300,000 tons. The country does not have foreign exchange for their importation and hence leaves them in a “roller coaster” precarious type of supply where nothing is guaranteed. The assembly understands the plight of agriculture but it is the poor management that is letting the sector down.


This was as pointed out in a closed-door meeting where the coalition government was seen to be fragile and inadequate to deal with smuggling and inequities present in businesses available in the nation. Insecurity has also affected agriculture as there is rampant carjacking, kidnappings and criminal gangs that extort the farmers. The government will be forced to import food but it must first of all sort out the issue of lack of foreign exchange according to Jose Gonzalez.


Jose also pointed out that the only viable way to solve the issues affecting the country at the moment is via an agreement that will be national. He opined that it was the agreement ought to favor the country and consider the responsibility it has to the future generations. He added that the parliament was the ideal platform to enact this agreement in order to steer the country away from the current crisis to proper governance. This will pave the way for peace and with it the economic growth.
