The president of the Superior Council of Private Enterprise, José Adán Aguerri told Elnuevodiario.com.ni that “… This is the time to make assessments, for the company to be paid one part, and a transfer made, via the tariff to businesses and consumers, from this situation that we are facing. This is because the benefit sought is not only good for business users in the energy sector, but also to users of the residential segment. ”

The presidential adviser for Economic Affairs, Bayardo Arce, added “… During 2014, the Government granted Venezuela a total of $5 million related to the debt used to finance the energy tariff. ”
