For the first time in history today the Euro and US Dollar became 1:1
The Euro has always been stronger last 20 years ranging from 1.7 to 1.3 per Dollar.
Reasons for the weak Euro:
- Russsia-Ukraine War
- Refer to 1 above
Zambia has significant imports from Europe which will now become in cheaper.
Also its partly why the Kwacha has gained to about 16 to the USD and about 1 to 1 with the SA Rand that is heavily linked to the EURO that purchases most of SA Gold and Diamond.
