Zimbabwe Remove Import Licences Requirement For 7 Commodities

Zimbabwe Remove Import Licences Requirement For 7 Commodities

Zimbabwe has through Statutory Instrument (SI) 103 of 2022 issued Friday removed import licences for seven commodities in an apparent move to contain prices and increase product availability.

The new measures are also aimed at restoring macroeconomic stability, easing inflationary pressures and restoring the buying power of the local currency with the main thrust being to increase the local and external competitiveness of the economy. Pindula News presents the Government Gazette below:
