CLAP Boxes incessantly fatten Group Grand Limited Cash Register

New documents show that the Hong Kong-registered company is one of Nicolás Maduro’s favorite to do business. While there are companies in the Venezuelan private sector that wait years for the payment of foreign currencies, in 2017, this company obtained at least two contracts for the supply of over 20 million of the boxes that the Government sells at subsidized prices, and it invoiced 113 million dollars to the Ministry of Food in just one day. The papers also confirm the connection of this company with Fondo Global de Construcción (Global Construction Fund), a network built by Colombian entrepreneurs Alex Nain Saab Morán and Álvaro Enrique Pulido Vargas, through which they obtained contracts under Hugo Chávez for the construction of prefabricated houses.

The luck of the businessmen in the Venezuela of Nicolás Maduro is unequal. While large transnational or Venezuelan companies are dying, those focusing the intermediation on the import of food for the state program of the Local Supply and Production Committee (CLAP) bill hundreds of millions of dollars in a single day. At least, that is the case of Group Grand Limited, a company originally registered in Hong Kong in 2013 and later on in Mexico, connected to the business network built by Alex Nain Saab Moran and Álvaro Enrique Pulido Vargas, two Colombian entrepreneurs who have been contractors of Chavismo.

For the dummy company, the serious supply crisis and the hunger of the Venezuelan people turned out to be a gold mine. In early 2017, it sold tons of food to the Venezuelan government through the State Government of Táchira, after Nicolás Maduro approved 340 million dollars from the National Development Fund (Fonden) for the then governor of that entity and current Minister of Foreign Trade, José Gregorio Vielma Mora to purchase ten million food combos. From January 8 to 30 alone, Comercializadora de Bienes y Servicios del Estado Táchira (Cobiserta) received at least 212 million dollars.
