The International Monetary Fund (IMF) stated that the Venezuelan economy has never been through a crisis so severe that it is being considered one of the biggest of the modern age. Incumbent President Nicolás Maduro issued a document authorizing PDVSA, the country's state-owned oil company, to increase production to the maximum, but due to the state's state of scrap, it does not have the technical conditions to explore the local oil reserves that are seen. as one of the biggest in the world.
