Earlier, UAE remittance companies told The Filipino Times that the peso-dirham exchange rate, which has continuously been moving up since last year, is headed to Php15, citing different factors.
One of which is the US’ move to hike interests resulting to a struggling peso.
Peso remains weak against US dollar which currently stands at Php54.009.
The last time peso hit P54 was in 2005, according to BSP’s data.
