José Manuel González is an agricultural business person and was the president of Fedecamaras. He currently serves as the deputy of the National Assembly in the Guárico State. Having succeeded in the agricultural field, he has given experiences of the difference between public service and being an entrepreneur. He shows how he has borrowed his political skills from being an active businessman.
González works in a state with a dire agricultural situation. He has improved the agricultural sector by focusing on production and growing exports. He has condemned various types of purchases where the import industry is high, while exports reduce. At the assembly, he has tried to make members understand the situation and need to improve agriculture. However, this has been unsuccessful due to various mismanagement by officials. The government, he says, has always pointed out on the weakness and flaws of the agricultural field.
As a top politician, José Manuel González has campaigned highly for developments that would improve the state’s economic growth. He has focused on exports and overbilling imports to reduce their total amounts. He notes that several imports which are smuggled have interfered with exchange rates. To change this, he has called out for an improved security across the borders.
