Venezuela has been a key Latin American market for many Canadian exporters across a range of sectors. Imported goods are critical to the Venezuelan economy. Nevertheless, Venezuela's excessive dependence on oil, high inflation, restrictive access to foreign exchange, and ongoing nationalizations have increased the risk of doing business in Venezuela. Accordingly, there has been a sharp decline in exporter and investor interest in this Andean market.
