Argentine Allows Currency Buying for PDVSA Deals, Clarin Says

Argentina’s central bank authorized local companies doing business with Petroleos de Venezuela SA to buy U.S. currency, daily newspaper Clarin reported.

Companies will be able to buy dollars at the official exchange rate when exporting machinery to Venezuela’s state oil company known as Pdvsa, Clarin said.

Argentina’s YPF SA (YPFD) and Pdvsa yesterday signed an accord aimed at jointly developing oil and gas projects, the newspaper said.
