The head of state called on the Compañía Anónima Nacional Telefonos de Venezuela (Cantv), EDC Network, Sistemas Metro de Caracas to participate in the deployment of this service; The Teques; Valencia and Maracaibo, State Railway Institute (IFE) and the infrastructure of the Ministry of Popular Power for Transportation.

“We must believe in the human, scientific, professional and intellectual capabilities of our people in the telecommunications engine that generally drives the scientific, technological, material and spiritual development of our beloved Venezuela,” he noted.

In turn, he urged companies to support the implementation of the Internet in schools with the intention of benefiting the 20,000 educational centers, of which 14,000 already enjoy the service.

As part of the policy to promote telecommunications at the national level, the president announced a set of measures, including the exemption of import taxes for a period of one year for telecommunications companies.
