    ploughing into

    Mr Chavez underlined the billions of dollars of aid Venezuela is ploughing into Bolivia's economy at a time when the US is reducing its contributions.

    US President George W Bush has avoided discussing his rival's regional trip during his own visit to Latin America.

    Also, What does `reducing its contributions' refer to here?
