The decisions concern both the state and private sectors. Among them is the implementation of an exchange market for the purchase and sale of foreign currency, including the US dollar, taking into account the gradual recovery of the economy, which, he said, is considered irreversible.
Likewise, he stated that the regulatory framework for foreign investment with the non-state sector would be established.
On the other hand, he stated that foreign and domestic suppliers would be able to commercialize products on consignment.
