Alejandro Reyes, from BBVA Research, said that in terms of the dollar, “the recent pressure is expected to moderate towards the last quarter of 2022 to bring the average rate for the year and for 2023 to around $4,050.” “Part of what is happening in Colombia and Chile is that they are countries highly exposed to raw materials, oil in the case of Colombia and copper, in Chile, and both have had a price reversal.
