Economist Gerardo Corrales, on Monumental Radio, referred to the use of international reserves, as decreasing to US$683 million between April and June.

For economist, Vidal Villalobos, there are fresh resources pending approval in the Legislative Assembly, which would be injected directly into the international reserves of the Central Bank.

In addition, the Central Bank is processing a loan with the Latin American Reserve Fund for US$1 billion, as one of the monetary policy measures to respond to the rise in the dollar exchange rate.
