The Riksbank gets clearer responsibility for cash

According to the new Sveriges Riksbank Act, the Riksbank will be responsible for at least five cash depots and will supervise cash management in Sweden. However, the possibility of paying with cash must also be enshrined in law. It is also important that cash-in-transit companies can maintain operations and that the banks take greater responsibility for cash.
