Extra session at Belarus’ Currency and Stock Exchange hailed as success

GOMEL, 19 September (BelTA) – The extra trading session at the Belarusian Currency and Stock Exchange that started on 14 September can be called a success, Gomel Oblast Governor Vladimir Dvornik told BelTA. He said that before the trading session started, the opposition had projected that the foreign currency will still not be available to all buyers and at exchange booths. “However, it turned out to be the opposite. In recent days residents of Gomel Oblast have been selling a great amount of foreign currency to banks, while there are not so many people wanting to buy it,” the Gomel Oblast Governor said. “All this has a favorable effect on public sentiment and instills hope that the financial difficulties the country faced in the previous months will be resolved,” Vladimir Dvornik said.
