The reference rate for the dollar exchange this Friday morning is ¢685.29 for the buy and ¢691.19 for the sell, while at the commercial banks the exchange rate is between ¢679 and ¢681 for the buy and ¢694 and ¢694 and ¢697 for the sell.

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.
