Sources Claim Venezuela Plans To Sell Eight Tonnes Of Gold From Central Bank
According to a report by Reuters, sources say that Venezuela removed eight tonnes of gold from the central bank's vaults last week, and the cash-strapped socialist state is expected to sell the vullion abroad as it looks to raise the value of its currency in the face of US sanctions. With revenues from exports by state oil company PDVSA choked off by sanctions imposed by Washington, President Nicolas Maduro's administration has turned to sales of Venezuela's substantial gold reserves as one of its only other sources of foreign currency. Reuters reports that at its current rate of decline, Venezuela's central bank reserves would be nearly depleted by the end of the year, leaving Maduro's government struggling to pay for the import of even basic goods.
