Short answer (you are using a home printer or a color laser printer at
a walk-in print shop i.e. kinkos) is yes it can.

You want to set the following PDF file options;
On the General Tab of the PDF options dialog under Images
Select Lossless Compression (this will use a PNG format for any
graphics in your file)
For "Reduce image resolution" select a minimum of 300 dpi

Now for the caveat.
If you are wanting to send to a commercial print shop for offset
printing there can be an issue with color representation.
LibreOffice only exports RGB color codes and most presses work with a
different coloring scheme CMYK.
For the most part commercial houses will perform the conversion from
RGB to CMYK for you but there is the chance that the colors will
change slightly. Just check with them about sending RGB before hand.

Hi, am coming from this link, apologies if this is the wrong email to contact.
Just wanted to know if the LibreOffice Draw file discussed in the link can create print quality 
PDFs, or is there no option but to use Adobe.
The document discusses this partially and also mentions Adobe.
