<p class="">The play of economic concepts both on the local and international scenes lead to strong or weak currencies and some African currencies have shown this within the first half of 2019.</p>

<ul><li>Some African currencies have shown weaknesses within the first half of 2019.</li><li>This is due to economic downturns such as war actions, GDP decreasing, falling prices of commodities.</li><li>The currencies were measured with the strength of the US dollar.</li><li>The Sao Tome and Principe Dobra (STD) emerged first while the Congolese Franc (CDF) was the last according to the list.</li></ul>

<p class="">Currency devaluation is often connected with badly organised monetary policy and relating to decisions of fiscal controls (Central Banking System).</p>

<p class="">In most cases, a state’s currency devalues because of economic downturn inside a country. This causes a balance of payments deficit and the inflation rate to grow.</p>

<p class="">This can be a consequence of different economic downturns such as war actions, GDP decreasing, falling prices of commodities that form large part of exports, purchasing power falling, credit conditions tightening, political instability inside a country among others.</p>

<p class="">The United States dollar is considered one of the strongest currencies in the world and it’s, therefore, an appropriate benchmark with which to measure the strength of some African currencies.</p>

<p class="">Whether you are travelling to any of these destinations or you are seeking a foreign exchange investment opportunity, it is important to become acquainted with the weakest currency in the continent.</p>
