Venezuelan oil minister Nelson Martinez and state oil company president Eulogio Del Pino will switch roles as the South American country’s production wanes and money dries up.

Del Pino will soon go on a series of foreign trips to strengthen alliances ahead of a meeting of heads of state which will seek accords on oil and gas prices, President Nicolas Maduro said on state television.
