The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) has announced that it will release Bond Notes worth $300 million at the end of this month. The RBZ says that the $300 million is another facility from the African Export and Import Bank (Afreximbank), which supported the $200 million Bond Note facility which was introduced in November 2016. The central bank says this will take the bond notes in circulation to half a billion dollars ($500 million).
The authorities expect the $300 million facility to increase exports and generate more foreign currency as a result, while at the same time improving the liquidity situation in the country. This comes as the cash shortages continue to worsen across the whole country.
