Central Bank of Uzbekistan won't issue new banknote
The Central Bank of Uzbekistan (CBU) did not make a decision to issue a 100,000-soum banknote, the bank's press service announced referring to the joint press conference of the CBU and Qishloqqurilishbank.
“If the country's economy needs such a bill, it will be released. There’s no such necessity for now, and all this is just rumors,” the CBU noted.
Some Uzbek media outlets announced on Sept. 25 that a 100,000-soum banknote will be issued in the near future.
Rumors about the new banknote began to spread as early as 2017.
