Expenses include the advisory fees, salaries and other allowances. There are at least 1,000 Cuban electrical workers in Venezuela right now, with 400 of them repairing the Planta Centro power station.
Interesting to point out that CORPOELEC has used in part borrowed money from the Inter-American Development Bank (IABD) to pay the Cubans.
