Posibleng bumulusok sa ₱55:$1 ang peso-dollar exchange rate sa taong 2018 dahil sa political uncertainty.
Ito ay ayon sa London-based economic research firm na Capital Economics.
“We expect most Asian currencies to hold up well against the US dollar in 2018, supported by healthy external positions and strong export demand. The main exceptions are those with significant external vulnerabilities (Sri Lanka and Pakistan) and where the domestic political situation may deteriorate (the Philippines and Thailand),” ayon sa ulat ng Capital Economics.
Ayon pa sa Capital Economics, maaaring sumadsad sa ₱52:$1 ang palitan ng piso kontra dolyar bago matapos ang taong 2017.
Dagdag pa ng Capital Economics, ‘less promising’ ang outlook para sa private investment dahil sa pulitika.
“If companies are to invest, they need a stable and predictable business environment. While Rodrigo Duterte has not been the disaster for the economy that some feared, there are signs the new president’s war on drugs, his erratic policymaking style and the worsening security situation in the south of the country is starting to weigh on investment prospects,” ani Capital Economics.
