New Banknotes: The Bank Of Mauritius Freezes The Project

The Bank of Mauritius (BoM) has stopped the printing project of a new banknote family. The decision has come after the disagreement expressed by Finance Minister Jugnauth on the high cost of this project which is approximately Rs 600 million.

The communication unit of the Central Bank says that the project was at a preliminary stage and no exercise tender has been launched so far.
