That the demand may thus be adjusted to the availability foreseen, in order to avoid inconvenience in the market;

That, on the other hand, the situation of our balance of payments compels us to pursue a very prudent policy in all that can mean currency erogations, both by cash purchases and by acquisitions with deferred payments, and also in all operations involving the use of credits abroad;

That it is therefore advisable for the Ministry of Economy to seek and centralize the relevant information, and to dictate measures leading to the rational use of our present and future availability of foreign exchange, eliminating or deferring imports that do not review priority;
