The Venezuela government has temporarily taken over a toilet paper factory in order to avoid a nationwide shortage. The decision was implemented by the National Guard which took control of the ‘Manufacturas de Papel’ plant and authorities will now oversee and monitor its production.
A few hours after the Venezuelan congress voted a 79 million dollars credit for the import of 39 million rolls of toilet paper and other personal hygiene items, the government of President Nicolas Maduro said this was because “Venezuelans are eating more”.
Venezuela's National Assembly approved a 79 million dollars credit for the import of toilet paper, toothpaste and soap. The measure comes after Venezuela hit the news with its dire toilet paper shortage.
