Khodrocar - As the price of the Nimaei and Sanai currencies approaches and the automotive and parts industries are eliminated from the government currency, activists in this field are forced to use the currency from exports, which has faced many obstacles in recent months. According to the manufacturers, even if the industry's liquidity is provided, currency supply will still be a priority, while with the appreciation of the dollar in recent months, the pricing of this area will definitely change.
"Parts manufacturers have long been in the queue to receive the currency, while the Nimayi currency is not currently available and the currency from exports is not easily found, and the price of this currency is an agreement that these conditions provide has become a serious challenge.” Arash Mohebi Nejad, secretary of part industry association told khodrocar reporter.
"Currency supply, pricing and sanctions are currently the three main problems in the parts industry, while the allocation of currency to the issue of order registration is also delayed, part of which is due to the corona issue because it has stopped banking activities and The number of human resources in banks has also decreased sharply, which has slowed down the normal course of their activities.” He said.
"The Nimai and Sanai currencies are hard to come by, and registering an order with an export currency has long been a problem these days, while finding a currency for exporters is also difficult.” He mentioned.
"At present, government currency is allocated only to certain goods, and the price of Sanai and Nimayi currencies is close to each other. The currency from exports is given to the fact that the parts maker is forced to find an exporter with special conditions.” He said.
"Exports of foreign exchange must be able to be transferred to the country from which the parts manufacturers are supplying raw materials. Meanwhile, in the latest price analysis with the automaker, the exchange rate of the component maker is 11 thousand tomans, while the exchange rate has now reached more than 16 thousand tomans, and in the last three months of last year, no automaker has changed the price of parts due to price increases.” He said.
"At present, we are pursuing the reform of this issue, because considering the average export exchange rate of 16,500 Tomans, we have increased the price by 50%, which is still increasing.” He said.
"Apart from Corona's problem, there is the issue of providing liquidity and foreign exchange. The importance of currency is the third priority, because the existence of currency will not solve the problem of non-supply of liquidity. It is considered and in the automotive industry, the first and second cases are moved because if the automakers correct the pricing, they will have several methods in order to provide liquidity.” He added.
Barriers to foreign exchange in the automotive industry are not new, as are other industries. Although Corona is part of the reason, it remains to be seen what the central bank will do next week to address the problem.
