This will ensure that the buyer always has a return value adjusted to the value of his investment.

Payments in PTR will be accepted according to their value in bolivars at the rate resulting from the operations of authorized trading sites, determined by market mechanisms and in accordance with the legal provisions issued by the competent authorities of the Republic. In addition, the Venezuelan government is committed to promoting the use of PETRO in the domestic market and doing the efforts necessary to stimulate its acceptance throughout the world.
