Collecting the fruits of an 18-year harvest
Eighteen is one of the most beautiful and productive ages of any human being.

It is during this period when all the energy concentrates to start life, and follow dreams, no matter how far they may seem to be. It is, in other words, the perfect moment to sow and cultivate efforts, which will certainly be later recognized.
This was exactly the amount of years Hiram Gaviria recently celebrated at Café Atlantique in Los Palos Grandes with a wonderful cocktail. Eighteen years of commitment with the agriculture and cattle sectors of the country. But beyond this, he was especially commemorating the anniversary of his TV programs, which started in October, 1987 in Venevisión, with the name Siembra un país.
Through the years, these programs have traveled around the country. From the Andean mountains to the Amazon forest, going through Los Llanos, the coast and the Center-Occident region.
Three years ago, and after going through some important changes, Haciendo país is now the official name of the program, that also focuses on all the agro industrial activities such as: coffee, cacao, milk, meat, fishing; and of course petroleum issues, construction, tourism and other services.
To Hiram Gaviria, the essence of these programs, what has kept them alive, has been the human factor: all Venezuelan men and women, especially the neediest who work in the service sector, and generate hundreds of employment. He also enhanced the positive influence in the programs that have gotten to the young people, who proudly represent their strong spirit.
We had a chance to congratulate Gaviria and his family on this well-deserved birthday celebration, and make toasts to Venezuela and its hardworking people.
