Venezuela's new dual forex rate to start on Thursday

CARACAS, March 9 (Reuters) - Venezuela's new dual foreign exchange system, with one rate fixed at 10 bolivars to the dollar and another "floating" from a starting rate of 206 bolivars, will come into operation from Thursday, the vice president for economy said on Wednesday.

Miguel Perez, speaking at a news conference, reiterated that the OPEC nation's socialist government was "religiously" honoring its foreign debt payments and did not have solvency problems despite the current "economic emergency."
