Minister Biti was responding to complaints over the issue of cross rate between the United States Dollar and the South African Rand, which has been blamed for price distortions, in his presentation of the Mid-term Policy Review Statement in Harare.

He said the issue of cross rate has become a problem that requires government to take stiffer measures to control.

Minister Biti reiterated government’s decision to continue using the multi-currency system as indicated in the recent Mid-term Policy Document.
