    Background: Uruguay clamped heavy taxes on foreign exchange buys and introduced import restrictions in new government measures which came into effect on Thursday (9 December).

    A control bank circular imposed a 120 pose (half a dollar) surcharge per dollar of foreign money used to pay for imports. A government decree also ordered foreign exchange brokers, exchange houses and travel agencies to submit sworn declarations on their foreign money dealings over the past three years.
