CHANTILLY, France, July 17 (Reuters) – The world’s top
financial policymakers gathering in France on Wednesday are
worried about Facebook’s plans to launch a digital currency and
have decided to act to keep this initiative in check, Italy’s
finance minister said on Wednesday.
“There’s widespread concern and a decision that this concern
will translate into action… to control what’s going on,”
Giovanni Tria told reporters after meeting finance ministers and
central bankers from the world’s other top six economies.
