Money in Venezuela
Venezuela - MoneyThe economy continued to languish in the final quarter of last year, although seemed to contract at a less severe rate. Oil production appeared to bottom out in Q4 after having fallen by more than 40% since the start of 2019 as U.S. sanctions and power outages choked the vital industry. In an attempt to revive the sector, the government indicated that it intends to offer majority shares and control of its oil industry to foreign corporations. In late January, officials held talks with Repsol, Eni and Rosneft to shape a deal which would grant government-owned oil property and restructure some of PDVSA’s debt in exchange for assets. Meanwhile, the increasing dollarization of the economy has reportedly somewhat stabilized prices, incentivized private sector activity and slowed emigration, with authorities introducing a VAT on U.S. dollar transactions to tap into new sources of government revenue.
