This Thursday, the Central Bank launched new measures to control the rise of the dollar. One of them consists of the prohibition of payment in installments in free shops, which will affect tourism and those who usually buy in duty-free shops.

This measure is added to another restriction for access to official currencies taken days ago, when the payment in installments of purchases abroad was prohibited. It came into force on Monday, July 4, with the aim of stopping the devaluation of the peso.

It should be remembered that after the resignation of Martin Guzmán, the parallel market came to quote the dollar at $280.
