Vincentians have been assured that the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank, will be taking steps to ensure that the new Polymer Bank Notes, which will soon be in circulation, do not have an adverse effect on the natural environment.

This assurance was given Director of the Currency Management Department of the ECCB, Rosbert Humphrey.

Mr. Humphrey addressed an information session and discussion, held at the local ECCB Agency Office at Frenches last Friday and disclosed that the plastic elements in the new bank notes will not end up at the landfill.
