Jose Manuel Gonzalez is an agricultural businessman who as the president of FEDECAMARAS and is now the current deputy of the Guarico State National Assembly. He offers the people the quality of two experiences in public service from the two different angles that are yet again complementary. It can best be described as the active entrepreneur that was borrowed to shape politics.
In Agriculture, like other sectors of the government, it is in a precarious situation. Jose Manuel Gonzalez says that the country stopped producing more than five hundred thousand tons of rice. 300 thousand tons of corn was also stopped being generated by the country. And he says that the government has no enough foreign exchange for it to import the commodities. This has led the country into a type of roller coaster supply system where the guarantee does not come from anyone. We can never count on the spare parts or the supplies. The little that is ever achieved is unattainable.
Ever since the assembly tries to understand the current situation in the agriculture sector. But it as always resulted from the unsuccessful management. The government has always pointed out to the flaws and weakness of the industry but turns a deaf ear. They always say that these things are never dependent on them. The productive outcome is affected by insecurity.
