INFRASTUCTURE IN PLACE

Unlike other frontier markets that have a GDP per capita in the range where the Venezuelan one is today after years of consecutive economic contraction, Venezuela already has an in-built infrastructure, an industrial and technological know-how and multi-billion dollar private savings (abroad) which no other country in the frontier market category has.

This means that Venezuela has the potential to grow its economy at much faster rates than that of most countries in the world and to generate extraordinary returns for investors.

WORLD’S LARGEST PETROLEUM RESERVES

Venezuela has the world's largest oil reserves, surpassing countries such as Saudi Arabia, and having more than 100 times the amount of proven oil reserves of regional producers such as Colombia. Global oil companies are familiar with Venezuelan geology. The location of the oil reserves is clearly defined; most are onshore and close to coastal ports or pipeline networks. Therefore, geological risk in Venezuela is minimum and oil production and export should be among the lowest in the hemisphere.
