Venezuela has long been a large provider of oil throughout the Americas. Most of Central and South America receive their oil from Venezuela. For years, the United States has asserted pressure on Venezuela keeping countries from buying oil from the country, but in recent years countries have been more willing to negotiate. Recently, Venezuela signed a new deal with the Trinidad and Tobago.
Nicolas Maduro has made major differences in Venezuela and he hopes to build the countries reputation. According to the Latino Show Magazine, he recently started negotiating with his counterpart for Trinidad that will help enrich both countries.

Trinidad and Venezuela have announced a major partnership between the two countries oil industries, and in both security and commerce. The two countries share a border and this partnership will ensure that both companies can enrich each other and stay more secure.

The partnership is mostly focused on natural gas extraction and exportation. The agreement is aimed at getting fast results for both sides, so that the citizenry will be enriched.

The two countries also want to increase trade through their borders, and they reached an agreement that would allow more trade to travel through their border. This opening up of trade is rare for both countries, but could make a huge difference for both sides.

The agreement between the two countries should make a major difference for both sides, says expert Luque. The trade agreement will bring food to the people of Venezuela and Trinidad.


One of the most important causes that occurred in Venezuela under the President Hugo Chavez administration has been to fight illiteracy. The UNESCO announced in 2005 that 95 percent of the entire population of Venezuela was literate. Mission Robinson was created by President Hugo Chavez in 2003. The free government program has taught more than a one and a half million people how to read and write, and this was just in the first 2 years. Marisol Calzadilla, President of Mission Robinson, sees this as a huge accomplishment for Venezuela. It not only makes Venezuela look good to the world for conquering illiteracy, it’s great for the development of the country and the people. Danilo Diaz Grandos thinks that participation in the power of government is strongly based on education and the ability to read and write.
Venezuela’s literacy program is based on the model that was put in place in Cuba explained Diaz Granados. Venezuela has recently taught their literacy program to close to 2.3 million citizens thanks to the effort of over 38 thousand dedicated teachers. Mission Robinson is divided into three sections: Literacy training, primary education, and reading circles for the elderly Mission Robinson graduates. Today, Mission Robinson is focusing on 1,000 prison inmates in 24 prisons who are in need of learning how to read and write. Mission Robinson educates geographically isolated and members of formerly excluded groups. Mission Robinson plans to completely wipe out illiteracy in Venezuela.
