Ref No : 14 Feb 2018 Embargo : For immediate release    

The Association of Banks in Malaysia (ABM) would like to state that our member banks have received adequate supply of banknotes for the Chinese New Year comprising a mixture of new and fit notes. Our member banks have therefore, been exchanging a mixture of new and fit banknotes for customers.

To support the national 'Go Green' initiative commenced by Bank Negara Malaysia in 2013 aimed at conserving resources and protecting the environment, member banks have been encouraging and will continue to promote the use of quality fit banknotes, which are as good as new, when customers exchange banknotes at their branches.

The Association of Banks in Malaysia would like to thank members of the public for their continuous support of this national 'Go Green' initiative by Bank Negara Malaysia.
