The main employers in Venezuela, Fedecámaras, warned on Sunday that the rationalization of electricity that is being applied in 20 countries in the country after the decay in March reflects on food production and hence on food supply.
"In the industrial sector, which does not have a power plant, there are big problems, and in sectors requiring a cooling chain, production is completely affected and it is beginning to feel in supply," said FedEx Carlos Carlos Efe Larrazabal.
He noted that so far employers have no accurate calculation of losses that have left all the failures of electrical services in the first and last week of March. However, he noted that due to massive disintegration of the seventh month, which lasted for 5 days, it is estimated that daily losses were $ 200 million. Larrazábal has been convinced that the losses due to unlucky events that took place in the last week of March were "harder" to be calculated for occasional services.
According to ministers Nicolas Madura, the disappearance of the current occurred because the United States and the opposition "attacked" the power system of the country in a "cybernetic" way with a long-range rifle. The opposition, for its part, points out that the lack of maintenance and corruption in the state has caused electrical failures.
On March 31 Maduro reported on the implementation of the rationalization plan for 30 days. According to a schedule devised by the Ministry of Electricity and the State Electricity Industry, 20 out of 23 countries in the country will be without electricity at least 18 hours a week. The program does not include Caracas, the state of Vargas, near the Venezuelan capital and where is the main airport in the country, and the Amazonas (south) and Delta Amacuro (northwest) border areas.
