MEDIA RELEASE: Foreign Exchange Supply and Demand

The Minister of Finance has noted with interest an editorial in the Sunday Express
regarding foreign exchange supply and demand.

The editorial correctly points out that the sales of foreign exchange to the public for the
first 7 months of 2023 are almost the same as the amount of forex available to the public
in the first 7 months of 2022, and therefore, there could be deeper issues affecting the
availability of forex at this time.
