The price of the dollar today, Friday, October 15, 2021, opens at 3.9200 soles, according to the Bloomberg portal. The value of foreign currency continues to decline after the ratification of Julio Velarde on the board of the Central Reserve Bank and the appointment of Mirtha Vasquez as president of the Council of Ministers.
In addition, the exchange rate in the parallel market is located at S / 3,870 for the purchase and S / 3,930 for the sale. As for Sunat, this state entity quotes the greenback at S / 3,997 for the purchase and S / 4,002 for the sale.
In economic news, when the dollar was on the rise, companies that carried out transactions with the US currency “saved” more than S / 9.5 billion, especially in economic activities dedicated to foreign trade. For Juan Carlos Mathews, former vice minister of Mype, this depended a lot on the type of company and how it obtained its income.
“If it was an export company, it could have benefited because the income is in dollars and it was an important advantage. The opposite happened with an importing company because it had to buy dollars to pay its supplier, ”the former public official told La República.
In addition, the Central Reserve Bank (BCRP) put into circulation since Thursday a silver coin commemorating the bicentennial of the National Library of Peru. An institution that protects the historical memory of the country and has been a meeting place for great Peruvian intellectuals, “whose contribution to national academic and educational development is invaluable.”
