Govt Determined To Give Value To RTGS Dollar
Finance and Economic Development Minister, Mthuli Ncube said Government is determined to give value to the RTGS dollar launched in February.
In an interview with United States’ National Public Radio (NPR) during his recent trip to Washington DC, Ncube said Government is determined to win the people’s confidence. Said Ncube:
There is reason not to be confident, and I agree with them. The reason was the macroeconomic management – the capacity, the determination, the focus – wasn’t there. That has changed since four months ago since we came in. We are running a budget surplus. We are containing the growth of money supply. We’re determined to give value to the currency that we’ve launched and want people to believe in us. We’re determined to make this right.
