Speaking to Business Times, expressed hope that the foreign currency trading platform will regain steam. He said:
It (interbank) was working very well until some (sentiment) went through the financial services sector and then we lost momentum and we are praying for it to come back again.
The interbank market was introduced in February this year and started trading at 2.5. However, the rate has plummeted to 15.7 while it is at 19.5 at the parallel market.
Mandgudya added that the 50 influential corporates, which account for ZWL$9.5bn of the ZWL$19bn deposits, should be monitored so that they do not manipulate the exchange rates and cause inflation.
