In his first press statement, Seif said that bank's interest and exchange rates must correspond with other economic indicators such as inflation, adding that the current exchange rate of 32,000 rials to the dollar is reasonable.

About three years ago, the Iranian currency was exchanged at just over 10,000 rials but it has experienced a steep devaluation in recent years.
