Importance of UAE Dirham to Nigerian Naira Exchange Rate
In 2020, the UN estimated 15,697 Nigerian expatriates were living in the UAE. Many of these transfer money from the UAE to their families in Nigeria.
For Nigerians living in the UAE, the dirham to naira exchange rate is an important factor in determining how much money they can send home to their families. Remittances are a vital source of income for many families in Nigeria, and the amount of money that can be sent home depends on the exchange rate. When the AED to NGN exchange rate is favourable, Nigerians in the UAE can send more money home to their loved ones.
On the other hand, when the exchange rate is unfavourable, remittances will be reduced. As a result, Nigerians living in the UAE need to stay up-to-date on the latest exchange rates to maximize their remittances.
In 2020, remittances to Nigeria were over $17 billion, making it one of the largest recipients of remittances in the world. While most of this money comes from Nigerians living in the United States and Europe, remittances from other countries, such as the UAE, are also significant. The inflow of remittances has a positive impact on the Nigerian economy.
Remittances can help to reduce poverty and inequality, as well as boost economic growth. For example, they can be used to invest in business or education or to cover basic needs such as food and housing. Additionally, remittances can help to stabilize the local economy by providing a steady source of foreign currency. In times of economic crisis, remittances can also act as a safety net for families struggling to make ends meet. As a result, remittances play a vital role in the Nigerian economy.
In 2019, goods with a value of $1.08 billion were exported to Nigeria from the UAE (source: WITS – trade database of the World Bank).
