What do you see hap­pen­ing in Venezuela?

Bloomberg Businessweek (North America) - - Companies/Industries -

Venezuela, tech­ni­cally, holds the largest re­serves in the world. But it’s fac­ing in­ter­nal dif­fi­cul­ties. We’re the only Amer­i­can com­pany there right now. We work very hard to main­tain our re­la­tion­ships. We deal in long cy­cle times, so we work with gov­ern­ments across the po­lit­i­cal spec­trum, in­clud­ing the Chávez gov­ern­ment and the Maduro gov­ern­ment to­day. One of the things that dis­tin­guishes Amer­i­can com­pa­nies is we re­ally don’t adopt an ide­ol­ogy. If it’s le­gal for us to do busi­ness and we can do busi­ness ac­cord­ing to our stan­dards, we’ll do busi­ness in many dif­fer­ent coun­tries around the world, re­gard­less of ide­ol­ogy.
