Strong dollar threatens Zimbabwe exports






Zimbabwe's bid to grow exports is under threat from a strong dollar which makes exports uncompetitive.

The threat comes after International Monetary Fund (IMF) boss, Christine Lagarde warned that the continued rise in American interest rates would challenge global trade.

Lagarde made the comments in response to questions of the viability of the United States president Donald Trump's policies at the ongoing World Government Summit 2017.
