"Venezuela will leave the Andean Community of Nations trade pact Friday after 38 years as a member, and it has yet to reach new long-term trade agreements with two of the bloc's other countries. President Hugo Chavez announced in 2006 that Venezuela was leaving the five-nation group after fellow members Peru and Colombia approved free trade deals with the United States. Venezuela had to give five years' notice, which expires Friday." (04/21/11)
