My proposal is that once we are in both of integration organizations our country becomes an effective conjunction of both seeking bridge of a common market that concrete, at the end, the integrationist aspirations. Relations with Colombia should be privileged. There is no need to elaborate on the reasons, but I would add an item: Venezuela must exit towards the Pacific in pursuit of an Asian vocation. Almost the same day which claimed this as urgent action President Santos spoke of building a great railway which would give Venezuela that condition. Proceed to preliminary studies with urgency and think of the port on the Colombian coast perhaps as a joint product.
Between Colombia and Venezuela has talked much and ideas remain in the role. That exit into another ocean of our country will be, without a doubt, great financing offer, in a special way in the hungry Asian countries that run quickly in search for new positions stop their economies. That railroad, thus the Santos President, has said it could be considered an alternative to the channel of Panama himself. But there is another project that has centuries in the speculation, already thought by liberators parent, and is the River integration of the continent. Some studies have been made, but it is clear that we can build the water road network connecting our rivers and turning them into the most spectacular Highway our products travel in all directions. That is a challenge that must assume. The new democratic Government must assume it. Finally it seems to me that in this field we have privileged relations towards Europe not always satisfactory.
I insist that we have before us the Netherlands Antilles, each now with a special status, but that, in my opinion, are the correct way for our approach to our commercial approach with the European Union.
