By Sailu Bah Operators of Forex Bureaus revealed that they have resumed paying western union Currency Export at USD 10,000money transfers four days ago after suspending the transaction for some weeks following the imposition of fixed rates for foreign currencies by the state. This development, according to the operators, has affected their businesses since the western union is one of the most widely transacted money transfer service in the country. Speaking to an operator in Banjul, he confirmed that the foreign exchange rates are not stable and fluctuates by the day. This, he said, is what is affecting business. “The problem is that one cannot buy the dollar at a high rate and then sells it at a lower rate.
