Guatemala signs deal with Russian printer Goznak

Banknotenews.com reports that Guatemala has just issued a new version of their 20 quetzal note. This note is still printed by the Canadian Bank Note Company but this will soon change. The Russian printer Goznak has relased an interview with Arkady Trachuk, General Director of Goznak. In this interview he indicates that Guatemala has signed a deal with Goznak to print the future 20 quetzal note.

In the same interview he indicates that a number of other countries are also clients of Goznak, like Lebanon, Yemen, Angola, Nigeria, Indonesia, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam to a smaller extent. One interesting thing he mentions is that Vietnam has shifted to plastic banknotes but is now in the process of coming back to the paper substrate (by Goznak).
