WASHINGTON (Reuters), – G7 financial officials on Wednesday endorsed thirteen public policy principles to central bank digital currencies. These currencies should be based on transparency, rule of law, and sound economic governance.

Group of Seven finance ministers, central bankers stated in joint statements that innovation in digital money and payment has significant potential but can also bring about substantial public policy and regulatory problems.
