The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe is inviting all interested individuals and institutions to register as bureaux de change as a way to enhance access to formal services for exchange of currencies in the country’s multi-currency system.
Part of the statement released by RBZ reads:
In an effort to enhance the ease of doing business and foster financial inclusion and the level of participation in the financial services sector, the RBZ is inviting all interested individuals and institutions to register as bureaux de change under the authorised dealers with Limited Authority framework as provided for under Exchange Control (Authorised Dealers with Limited Authority Order 2015, Statutory Instrument of 2015.
