" Mark Stevenson IBDA President

Excerpt from IBDC website

Never before has banknote design had such an important role to play in defining the position occupied by cash in this new multi-payment economy. Our collective challenge is to ensure that cash continues to be demanded by all users and the WBP has been developed to allow designers to express how they believe they can contribute to this.
