Caracas, March 6, 2023 (Press Mincomunas) – This Monday, the People’s Minister for Communes and Social Movements, Jorge Arreaza, met with João Pedro Stédile, representative of the Landless Movement (MST) of Brazil, with whom he assessed the first phase of the cooperation program established.

During the meeting, the MST proposed further training in cooperation, production chains, food technology, and biotechnology.

They also set goals for subsequent phases of the program, involving the strengthening of the training process. They also discussed the importance of incorporating other ministries of the Venezuelan Executive Branch relevant to the goals set, such as Food, Productive Agriculture and Land, Science and Technology, and National Trade.

The meeting also specified an agenda for the next activity, the rice harvest festival in Brazil, where a Venezuelan delegation will travel to the neighboring country to learn about the experience on-site. Another point addressed by Arreaza and Stédile was the establishment of the international desk.

The meeting also addressed the articulation proposal between a university in Porto Alegre, the capital of Rio Grande do Sul state, and the Alcaravan Electronic Complex of Technological Systems, based in Guárico state, to strengthen the training processes in food technology and biotechnology.

Minister Arreaza proposed to strengthen the Latin American Agroecological Institute “Paulo Freire” (Iala) and the production of bio-inputs.

In the context of the cooperation program between the Ministry of Communes and the MST, they held a meeting of the Political Strategic Alliance at the end of February in the Alcaravan complex in San Juan de Los Morros.

The cooperation program between the MST and the communal portfolio includes knowledge exchange for technological upgrading and developing the Communal, productive, and technology processes.
