Barinas to prioritize roadworks, basic services in 2011 (Venezuela)
Venezuela's central-western state Barinas will prioritize projects to improve road connectivity and basic services in 2011, which will require several millions of dollars, a spokesperson from the regional government told BNamericas.


State authorities are currently working with local communities to discuss needs and draw up project proposals. Documents will be submitted to state authorities before year-end so that the necessary funds can be disbursed in 2011, the spokesperson said.


Maintaining and improving connectivity in the state is crucial to facilitate the trade of its livestock and agricultural produce. Barinas' geography, which includes high mountains and an abundance of rivers, means that road maintenance and flood prevention infrastructure are key, according to the official.


Waterworks in previous years have prioritized improving and expanding irrigation infrastructure. In 2011, key projects will involve improving Barinas' potable water and sewerage provision.


Barinas' governor is Adan Chavez, the brother of President Hugo Chavez.
