Argentine Businessmen Ask to Ease Dollar Limits, Infobae Says

Aug. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Argentina should relax restrictions on access to foreign currencies once the government completes a $2.2 billion bond payment on Aug. 3, said Ignacio de Mendiguren, head of the country’s biggest businessmen’s group, according to online news service Infobae.

De Mendiguren, speaking in a seminar, said that the measures are unnecessary, given the country’s current economic situation, the Buenos Aires-based news service said.

Over the past 10 months President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner introduced restrictions on access to foreign currencies, including a ban on most purchases by individuals.
