Several commercial banks in Uzbekistan raised the US dollar exchange rate on Wednesday, December 15.
Many of them have set the purchase rate at 10,790 – 10,840 soums and the sale at 10,890 – 10,900 soums. For the first time, the exchange rate of the dollar has reached the 10,900 soums mark. It shows the Uzbek soum is losing its value incrementally.
Yesterday, December 14, the US currency exchange rate was recorded at 10,880 soums.
It should be noted that since mid-February of the current year, the Central Bank has been publishing currency exchange rates every day, not once a week as it used to do previously.
