    Default What's happening with the exchange rate

    [CENTER]I really have no answer , but in today's Daily Listin there is an article about the demand of having the exchange rate at 37 Pesos a $.. and an answer by the president that this would increase their debts by millions of pesos .. It seems that some exporters as well as the touristical sector are asking to devaluate the peso ....For me the article "Advierte sobre devaluación
    Leonel dice que las protestas callejeras tumban Gobiernos en América Latina" isn't very clear but at least something is moving .

    See dr1 news today (Friday, 1 April) at
    Will be available online through Monday, 4 April morning.

    Problem is that the past government went on a debt-taking spree. The present government has an agreement with the IMF to pay the debt. Bottom line is that the government likes the appreciated peso because then the dollars it needs to pay the debt cost less.

    What this means is that the DR is not the bargain it was; not as expensive as other destinations in the Caribbean, but no longer a bargain.
