Effective 1st January 2017, Pula Basket weights to 45% South African Rand and 55% to SDR (Special Drawiing Rights). SDR consists of USD, British Pound, Japanese Yen, Euro and Chinese Renminbi. The influence of South African Rands is therefore relatively reduced. This has had an effect of adjusting Pula value downward, thereby making locally manufactured products find export markets.
