Breaking: No More 1:1, The Bond Note And RTGS To Trade Separately Against Other Currencies

Bond Notes

In His Monetary Policy Statement presentation, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Governor John Mangudya has said that the central bank is establishing an inter bank market to trade in forex.

  1. There is nothing new in this MPS. He has already confirmed what we all know. In my opinion, it is shallow and lacking in detail, policy measures, time lines & practical solutions to monetary related challenges.
