  • [01] Paiements en espèces : l'euro progresse

    During the second business day of the new year the use of the euro progressed according to plan. On average 40% of the transactions were carried out in euro and 97% of ATMs were adapted to give euro. Citizens in general have tried to use their remaining national currency notes and coins and get change in euro during these first days. This is a clear indication that they want to use the euro exclusively as soon as possible. Queues in banks continue to be longer than usual but the situation in the retail sector was normalised yesterday although the final test is expected on Saturday. The enthusiasm of the European people for our new currency continuous to be the main factor of success.
