On Wednesday, CBI also issued figures related to hard currency trade in the Secondary Forex Market between exporters and importers. According to the bank, between Aug. 7 (the day CBI eased currency controls) and Sept. 11, trade volume reached €2.81 billion. Hard currency allocated to imports during this period, amounting to €2.45 billion, indicates that currency supply has so far outweighed demand, Financial Tribune reported.
