For those that believe that Governments can do the job, the Exchange Control Office, CADIVI, finally handed out yesterday the first dollars under the new control regime. The grand amount of US$ 30,000 was handed out yesterday to students and “special cases” only 67 days after the country stopped foreign exchange transactions. Of course, this is my biased view of the Governmnt’s icompetence, the Head of the Foreign Exchange Office explained that the delay was due to the fact that they are using “very novel technology”. Oh! that explains it.
