Prices are now rising daily in the country again. It is said that the increase is partly due to the fact that the demand for foreign currency is greater than the supply. Prices are expected to continue to rise in the coming days.
In the 2020 elections, President Chandrikapersad Santokhi had promised that the VHP would come to government with a number of measures to stabilize the exchange rate within two years and bring it back below SRD 7 to the US dollar. Now more than two years later, the price has not fallen, but has increased further.
