Statement by IDB President Moreno on the death of President Hugo Chávez Frías

The President of the Inter-American Development Bank, Luis Alberto Moreno, today expressed his condolences to the government and the people of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela on the passing of their president, Hugo Chávez Frías.

“President Chávez was known for his deep concern for the poor, his enthusiasm for Latin American and Caribbean unity, and his solidarity with other nations,” Moreno said. “Venezuela’s generous support for Haiti following the earthquake of 2010 was just one example of that commitment. With his passing, the cause of regional integration loses one of its great champions.”
