What affects exchange rates between the US dollar and Croatian kuna?

As a member-state in the European Union, the Croatian economy is closely linked to the overall European economy. Because of this, the exchange rate between the kuna and US dollar closely follows that of the euro and US dollar.

Even though Croatia is an EU member, they don’t use the euro as their currency yet. Discussions on introducing the euro are happening in Croatia, with many important institutions such as the Croatian Central Bank arguing that they should join the Eurozone.

Factors that can affect the exchange rate between the US dollar and the Croatian kuna include:

  • Political developments in the United States, Croatia or the EU
  • Economic growth in either country
  • Unemployment levels
  • Interest rate changes in either the US or Croatia

Did you know?

Interest rates are usually the main determinant for exchange rates of any currency. Generally speaking, the country with rising interest rates will also have a strengthening currency compared to countries with lower interest rates. This happens because higher interest rates work as an incentive for foreign investors to buy local currency and deposit it in a bank to earn the higher interest rate.
