UN System presents to the Bolivarian Government the ‘Plan for economic and social recovery’ before COVID-19
The Sector Vice-president for Planning, Ricardo Menéndez, accompanied by the People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, Jorge Arreaza, held a meeting on Tuesday with representatives of the United Nations Organization (UN) system accredited in Venezuela, in order to learn about the response and recovery proposal that the multilateral organization agreed to offer Venezuela in economic and social matters in the presence of COVID-19.
During the meeting, the attendees discussed, among other things, the need to strengthen cooperation alliances with the UN and other multilateral organizations, in order to break the chain of contagion of the virus in the country, and allow the population to continue their daily tasks under a relative and supervised normality.
It should be noted that the Bolivarian Government has received important recommendations on what to do to stop and control COVID-19, and has also obtained recognition from the World Health Organization, the Pan American Health Organization (WHO/PAHO ) and the UN, before the measures implemented by the National Executive for the protection of the people.
The working meeting was also attended by the executive secretary of the National Human Rights Council, Larry Devoe, the Vice-minister for Multilateral Issues, Alexander Yánez, and the resident coordinator of the United Nations System in Venezuela, Peter Grohmann, and others representatives of international entities belonging to the United Nations System.
