January 03, 2016. Oil analyst Fernando Travieso said that the agreement signed by members of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) in November will allow "the national economy to grow slightly, But a growth "that will reduce national shortages.
In an interview on the "La Pauta de Hoy" program transmitted by Venezolana de Televisión (VTV) on Tuesday, the analyst detailed that with the reduction in crude oil production to 1.2 million barrels a day Venezuelan oil prices will rebound, Will result in higher foreign exchange earnings, imports will be facilitated and the economy will be energized as well as a decrease in shortages.
He emphasized that the agreement benefits all countries of the world because oil is the one that facilitates the transport of merchandise worldwide.
He criticized that the Venezuelan right discredits what was achieved by the OPEC member countries and not OPEC.
"The role of them (of the Venezuelan right) and therefore receive funding, is to eliminate the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, which collapses the price of oil so that gasoline can be sold cheaply in consumer countries at the expense of Impoverishment of Venezuela, "he said.
He said that the ultra-right search with the website of Dollar Today that imports are made on the basis of speculative dollar to generate a process of inflation in the country's economy.
"The parallel market of Dollar Today is not only economic, they fix a parity of their own amounts without any reason, for no reason. That is demonstrated, the day that Venezuela reached the agreement with the OPEC and non-Opec fired the price of Dollar, economically that does not have logic, they fix the price as they please, "he said.
Sale of gas at the border
The analyst said that "having bombs in which citizens of the Republic of Colombia can come to fill their gas tanks and pay them in foreign currency is highly positive, a national income for PDVSA (Petroleos de Venezuela) and Venezuela."
He added that the ideal would be to expand the plan across the border because the more bombs have "fewer incentives for smuggling extraction."
The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela started Monday the sale of gasoline in international currency, in the border zone with Colombia (Ureña and Paraguachón) through the authorized stations of Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA).
