    Re: we need foreign exchange

    I found this website:

    http://www.statssa.gov.za/?p=6166

    Is it correct to say tourism is a great way of attracting foreign exchange.

    Tourism is a great source of foreign exchange earning.

    Re: we need foreign exchange

    The page at the first link was written by a native speaker. The sentence you quoted from it is correct and natural.

    The page at the second link was written by a non-native speaker. The quoted sentence is incorrect.
