Venezuela: Exporter Guide

Venezuela is a significant importer of agricultural products, totaling US$9.7 billion in 2013 according to data from the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela (GBRV). U.S. agricultural and food exports over the last five calendar years (2009-2013) averaged US$1.3 billion per year. However, total U.S. agricultural export value to Venezuela is down in 2014, due mostly to an economic system in crisis. The lack of dollars is arguably the most significant obstacle to trade for Venezuelan importers.
