Ghana Cedi Hits ¢10 To A Dollar

Spread the love

The Ghana cedi has hit the ¢10 mark as it traded at ¢10.01 in the retail market yesterday August 18th, 2022.

At the same time, the cedi went for ¢10 to a euro.

 

The cedi’s situation has become a major worry to businesses and household consumers, as its continuous depreciation is expected to be halted by the recent measures announced by the Bank of Ghana and the expected $750 million syndicated loan.

 

The Bank of Ghana had introduced measures including working collaboratively with the mining firms, international oil companies, and their bankers to purchase all foreign exchange arising from the voluntary repatriation of export proceeds from mining, and oil and gas companies. This it believes will strengthen the central bank’s foreign exchange auctions, and consequently the cedi.

The inflows of the expected $750 million syndicated loan may also halt the rapid fall of the cedi in the short term.
