The Cocoa Law project, an initiative of the producer, seeks to stimulate the national economy for the benefit of the peasant sector.
The National Assembly announced that this year it will work on the discussion of the Cocoa Law project to stimulate the national economy.
Quoted in a press release, the president of the National Assembly's Agricultural Economics subcommittee, Deputy Ignacio Buznego, stressed that this regulation is necessary to stimulate the national economy for the benefit of the peasant sector.
"Farmers and peasants continue to be subject to outsourcing," denounced the deputy, arguing with this the need to debate and approve bills that improve the quality of life of the farmer through cocoa production.
In May 2022, the Fundación Nuestra Tierra submitted to the national parliament a proposal for the Venezuelan Cocoa and Chocolate Law as a Popular initiative.
This legislative proposal was prepared by cocoa producers from Lara, Monagas, Miranda, Mérida, Sucre and other states of the country.
