Argentina Exchange Rate Economical Influences
If you are considering converting AUD to ARS, it is good to get a snapshot on how the economy of the country you are planning to visit may influences the Argentine exchange rate.
Argentina is one of the largest South American economies and part of the G20 economies. Recent times, the country is going through some significant economic reforms, which has resulted in rising interest rates and volatility of the Peso. The Argentine government hopes to stabilize the fluctuation and weakening of the Peso and return healthy growth to the economy over the next few years.
The stability of the Peso is integral to its export economy with manufacturing being a significant contributor to their GDP.
The Argentine Peso was pegged to the USD in 1992 at a rate of 1 USD for 1 Argentine Peso initially to stimulate economic growth and reduce hyperinflation. Although this system produced positive results initially, it was not sustainable and hence the agreement expired in 2001. Since then, the Argentine Peso has been fluctuating substantially.
