Colombian Government

The Colombian Government since then has kept prudent silence while Chavez has continued his little friendly references to his Colombian colleague and even reached call consultations its Ambassador in Bogota Pavel Rondon, a gesture that connoisseurs catalogued as the prelude to a final break of diplomatic relations. Contact information is here: Caterpillar. In La Guajira yet the crisis has not felt in all its rigor: traffic on the border continues with the fluidity of always and the citizens of one and another country travel and doing business here and there as if nothing had happened. However, fear underlies every person and there is always the anguish of that at the least expected moment, the border is closed. If that should happen the consequences would be truly serious for the regional economy: firstly the scarcity of fuels would be and they would subsequently be affected the small businesses whose livelihood is based on trade between the two Nations. Recent history reminds us that the seasons in which the Venezuelan fuel entry is restricted, live truly chaotic days even in the departments of cesar and Magdalena and la Guajira. Also dramatically altered the situation of small merchants whose sales depend on buyers coming from the other side of the border. In this case the prejudice would come even to large Colombian and Venezuelan companies whose exports represent about five billion dollars a year.

It is a very important figure composed of three billion dollars that the Colombians sell to Venezuelans and two billion us they sell to us. Colombia and Venezuela are needed. The homeland of the Liberator is the second commercial partner of Colombia and a good alternative if the FTA with the United States is not signed in the medium term. For the neighboring country Colombia is a good provider of food of good quality and fair prices and in this way, an ideal partner to prevent a shortage of basic necessities. For the foregoing reasons is to be expected that the crisis can be overcome soon.

Good art of diplomacy replacing lit speeches so that both Governments mutually regain confidence and act in a fraternal way, how citizens of the border, who went ahead with the cordial relationship of peoples who have historically lived in fraternal, harmonious and happy, looking the other way we have taught them the complement ideal to achieve its development.
