(Bloomberg)--The nine-member committee includes officials from the presidency, the finance, energy and commerce ministries, and the central bank, according to a statement emailed by the Treasury on Friday. The creation of the panel is part of a broader plan to set up a revised framework for foreign-exchange allocation, Ncube said.
