Between 2020 and 2021, Venezuela participated in 52 cooperation initiatives. Of this total, 32 were implemented through Bilateral SSC, followed by 19 Regional SSC programs and 1 Triangular Cooperation project in the Industry sector, in which Venezuela was the first provider. This initiative was related to the start-up of a Coffee Roastery in the Commonwealth of Dominica, in association with the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America – Peoples’ Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP by its Spanish acronym).
Venezuela acted as recipient in both Bilateral and Regional SSC, which enabled it to strengthen its capacities in the Health, Education, Strengthening institutions and public policies and Agriculture and livestock sectors, among others. In turn, as provider, it shared its knowledge in Health, Construction, Culture, Education, Energy, Industry and Other services and social policies.
Venezuela associated with several stakeholders in order to implement these exchanges, among which Cuba, Ecuador and Colombia stand out. As a result of the cooperation in which this Andean country participated, Ibero-America was able to advance the achievement of SDG 3 (Good health and well-being), SDG 4 (Quality education) and SDG 11 (Sustainable cities and communities).
