Nicaraguan businesses say they will continue to manage their business operations in dollars because they are not prepared to use the Sucre.
"There aren't any business (signed up to) to the Superior Council of Private Enterprise" (COSEP), the most important business association in Nicaragua, who have, at this time, the possibility of using the mechanism of Single Regional Compensation System (sucre)", said the head of the organization, Joseph Adam Aguerri.
"Nicaragua yesterday made its first operation with the sucre, selling 500 metric tons of red beans to Venezuela for 25 million sucres (about $31.2 million)", noted an article in Eleconomista.net.
According to Aguerri Cosep companies have made dollar transactions for the last few years and that this mechanism will remain the same.Alberto Guevara
, president of the Central Bank of Nicaragua (BCN), said the country will have better opportunities from now on, by trading using the sucre.
