ALMATY, Sept 3 Kazakhstan plans to widen the
tenge's trading corridor against the U.S. dollar to 185 tenge
plus 3/minus 15, the head of the Kazakh central bank Kairat
Kelimbetov told reporters on Wednesday.
"We plan to take this decision this week," he said.
The current corridor stands at 185 plus/minus 3 per dollar.
In February the central bank devalued the tenge by 19
percent to about 185 per dollar, taking the wind out of the
sails of speculators and adjusting to the freer rouble of its
main trading partner Russia.
