Elman Rustamov suggested switching to plastic banknotes.

The Central Bank of Azerbaijan (CBA) is proposing to switch to plastic (polymer) bills in the future.
According to Trend, the chairman of the Central Bank of Azerbaijan Elman Rustamov said at a press conference in Baku.
As Rustamov noted, cotton bills due to long-term use lose their original appearance and deteriorate over time, which leads to additional expenses of the Central Bank.
Rustamov noted that the turnover of the Azerbaijani manat today is 213 million bills worth 8.3 billion manat. Frequently replaced banknotes in the back are banknotes of 1, 5, 10 and 20.
