Have the divergent unofficial and official Kyat payments raised a lot of money for Myanmar's bank?
Have the divergent unofficial and official Kyat installments just made Myanmar's financial institutions a lot of money? Myanmar's Kyat has fallen dramatically in recent months and fell to its low of K818 against the US $1.5 billion since its IPO in April 2012.
In the second wave of June, the Kyat dropped to K1,300 against the greenback, forcing the President's Bureau to stabilise the central bank of Myanmar (CBM). In May, action by CMBM to curb US dollars withdrawn and a USD 4.9 billion trading loss from the past fiscal year are probably the reasons why the Kyat plummeted so quickly.
Some criticise the bank's "kneecap response" to the trading deficiency of the retention of foreign currency in conjunction with the retention of dollars to make more profit has driven up the informally traded price. In a period when neighboring Southeast Asian economies have been active in trying to devaluate their currency to promote trading, Myanmar's move to restrict currency trading has caused concerns among domestic exports about their capacity to competing in global marketplaces.
In Myanmar's export sector, one resource says the disguised rates of price increases could even reach 13. CBM says it will begin full sales of FX at the fixed K1105 exchange rates to the US Dollars to help promote gasoline and other oil exports and avoid further slippage in Kyat.
The state-run press reports that a grand total of 20 commercial bankers will start to sell the dollar to loosen the constraints. As the Kyat has fallen, the price of imported fuels has increased constantly. Myanmar Petroleum Trade Association's website of June 12 showed that the price of Octane 95 gasoline rose by 2.5% over the prior weeks, while the price of gasoline rose by 3%.
Myint, Myanmar Petroleum Trade Association Secretariat, said last weeks to the state press that the CBM vice-chairman had assured exporters that enough US dollar would be shipped on demand. Goverment agencies have started to crack down on the trade outside the admitted range of plus or minus 0. 8% around its subscription price of K1105.
However, before the state intervened to urge the BPM s to fix its course, this had led to a reluctance of the bank and money changers to trade the dollar instead of trading at a lower price than they would in an open one. However, while the oil federation and oil exporters have generally supported the action, others say that the relaxation of constraints is imbalanced, for example in the travel exports sector.
"If I sold dollars at the present banking buying rates, as an exporting company I could in no way reach the prices charged by Europe's importers," the industry's sources say. He says the big issue is where is the money going? There were two local frontier contactors who acknowledged the resale mechanisms but said that they were not making money from them and that they did not want to put them on trial.
