ABC Holdings has an agreement with its subsidiary, ABC Corporation, that the subsidiary pays 50 percent of the value of all its exports to the Holding company in Windhoek. Mr Mbayo Tjiramba the CEO for ABC Holdings has planned to visit TMC Corporation in Washington DC, TN Holdings in London, and ABC Corporation in Paris within the next six months. He is planning to spend US$2,000 in America, 1,500 British pounds in the United Kingdom, and 1,000 euros in France. The current spot exchange rates between the Namibian dollar and the US dollar, the British pound, and euro are 15.9; 20.6; and 17.6 respectively.
