Zimbabwe has introduced a new half-a-billion dollar bank note in a bid to tackle cash shortages fed by rampant inflation, the central bank said yesterday. The note comes into circulation 10 days after the introduction of a quarter-of-a-billion one earlier this month. This is the fourth set of high denomination notes to be issued this year, the first being in January when a Z$10million note was put into circulation. - AFP
