Centrale Bank van Suriname

The CBVS has no specific stated CBDC policy.  But the Bank is involved in digitization and did attend FILAC (Financial Inclusion of Latin and Caribbean Countries).

The Suriname Dollar is the national currency. There was a swap agreement with China in 2015.











“The CBvS operates the national payments system of Suriname. At present, Suriname has no electronic inter-bank payment systems and all clearing and settlement of inter-bank payments (including cheques) is carried out semi-manually. In the near future, the Central Bank wishes to introduce a modern electronic payment system.” CBVS
