Venezuela - Money

The economic panorama remained bleak as the coronavirus pandemic and dwindling oil production hammered domestic activity in the first half of the year and into Q3. Oil production in July remained close to the lowest level in nearly 80 years amid U.S. sanctions against PDVSA, the state oil company. Moreover, the last working oil rig was closed down in August as production in the Orinoco belt and the Maracaibo basin dried up. Furthermore, gasoline shortages led to rationing of supplies due to multiple shutdowns at PDVSA’s Paraguaná refining center in early September. In the political scene, upcoming elections are resulting in a fracturing of opposition parties—to the benefit of incumbent President Maduro—as opposition leaders disagree over whether to contest December’s congressional elections or abstain from a vote they consider fraudulent and rigged.
