The Central Bank has taken steps to pay $ 500 million for the International Sovereign Bond, which matures today (18), and the necessary documents have been prepared by the Department of Credit and the payments will be made today, Central Bank Governor Ajith Nivard Cabraal said.
The Governor of the Central Bank states that no one should be alarmed about this.
“We have faced some challenges. We have overcome all those challenges. In this case, if at any time the amount of dollars in the banks is less than the required amount, the Central Bank is bound to fill that gap. I discussed this with the President, the Prime Minister and the Minister of Finance. In such cases we will take action to provide that money. Therefore, we do not expect to have any deficit due to lack of funds. ” Cabraal added.
