Zimbabwe will “soon” introduce a central bank reference rate as part of measures the southern African nation’s government wants to use to prop up the collapsing economy, its finance minister said.

Having a reference rate will help the country manage monetary policy, Mthuli Ncube said in an interview Thursday on Bloomberg Television.

The nation also plans to introduce a new, fully fledged currency in the next 12 months and to close the gap between the rate for dollars in the official and parallel markets using RTGS dollars, which the government introduced in February, he said.
