Trade Balance in Venezuela

Venezuela - Trade Balance

The country is sliding into chaos as the political crisis enters its third month without an end in sight. The collapsed economy has taken a back seat to politics as the government mobilizes all resources to form a super-body known as a constituent assembly, in what is seen as the ultimate power grab. Economic activity has been brought to a near-standstill and the latest indicators show a continuous economic deterioration. The differential between the official and non-official exchange rates is still abysmal despite an over 60% devaluation in May, the latter of which will contribute to stoking already astronomically-high inflation. The liquidity crunch the government is facing became evident after it sold some of its holdings of the state oil company’s debt at a huge discount to meet short-term financing needs. The government received USD 865 million selling bonds worth USD 2.8 billion on its books to Goldman Sachs, a move widely criticized for providing a lifeline to the increasingly authoritarian regime at the cost of increasing the government’s medium-term debt burden.
