Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh also called on the Arb banks to be ready to the upcoming global changes, mainly in the field of shifting to the use of global central bank digital currencies, noting that they will be acknowledged in the financial and business transactions at the world level particularly with the trend of China to adopt its digital yuan, a central bank digital currency (CBDC), in its transactions and dealings with other countries.
