In a “conservative scenario,” in which Venezuela did not receive additional Chinese financing last year, the total of cash holdings in international reserves and off-budget fund holdings is estimated at USD 15 billion.
This was the conclusion reached by think tank Torino Capital in its weekly report. Additionally, they reckon that in a “more optimistic scenario,” such amount would raise to USD 19 billion.
“We estimate the country’s remaining external financing needs for the rest of the year at USD 4.6 billion. Either of these levels of asset holdings would imply that authorities continue to have at their disposal enough options so as to enable them to continue servicing their external obligations.”
