In response to a sharp depreciation of the Zimbabwean dollar, the country’s central bank and finance ministry have announced collaborative efforts to restore stability to the local currency.

The Zimbabwean dollar has witnessed a significant 40% decline since the start of the year, driven by heightened demand for foreign currency due to civil servants receiving bonuses in December and weakened commodity prices hampering inflows.

This depreciation has triggered concerns about accelerating inflation, echoing past challenges faced during the era of former leader Robert Mugabe. President Emmerson Mnangagwa hinted at the possibility of introducing a “structured currency,” though details on its implementation remain undisclosed.

Governor John Mangudya of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe emphasized the importance of providing market guidance through the forthcoming monetary policy statement, jointly developed by the central bank and the treasury. He highlighted the urgent need for stability in prices and exchange rates amidst the current inflationary environment.

While Mangudya refrained from specifying a timeline for the release of the policy statement, stakeholders are eagerly awaiting further details. These measures are anticipated to inspire confidence and promote stability within Zimbabwe’s financial landscape, as the nation strives to navigate through ongoing economic challenges.
