- Foreign investment: When foreign investors invest in Nigeria, they bring in dollars, which strengthens the naira. Conversely, when foreign investors pull their money out of Nigeria, they take dollars with them, which weakens the naira.
- Inflation: Inflation is the rate at which prices for goods and services are rising. When inflation is high, the value of the naira decreases.
- Government policies: The Nigerian government can also implement policies that affect the dollar-to-naira exchange rate. For example, the government can restrict access to dollars, which would weaken the naira.
The dollar-to-naira exchange rate is important for a number of reasons. It affects the cost of imports and exports, as well as the cost of travel and remittance payments. It also affects the investment climate in Nigeria.
