According to Bloomberg News Agency said the ECB Council has agreed to form a group of technical details of the abolition of 500 euros bills, is expected after 2~3 months, the Council will make the final decision. Delagi delivered a speech at the European Parliament insisted that the ECB will only consider the abolition of the 500 euro note. This is mainly to combat crime, not to curb the use of paper money. There is growing evidence that high paper money will help crime. Delagi also said that even if the 500 Euro denomination was abolished, it would not affect the 200 euro denomination notes. People can still hoard 200 euro notes. Earlier, euro zone finance ministers asked the European Central Bank to examine how the face value of paper money could help terrorists get funding. Delagi said, in this context, the ECB will carefully review, find out the best way to solve this problem. The euro area’s 500 euro notes have been circulating since 2002.

Treasury Secretary Luxemburg also said that 500 euros worth of banknotes is too high, must fight fraud, curb corruption, fight terrorists, so it should be abolished such high denomination banknotes. ECB executive board member Yves Mersch said this month, although lawmakers have called large amounts of paper money helps to criminal activities, but the European Central Bank needs before taking any action, to collect relevant evidence.
