As per experts’ opinion, it is up to a person to decide on where to keep savings, however, sometimes big cash amount on hand may cause big problems for the state. In particular, this may slow down the country economic development and the country’s bank system, to foster grey money turnover and dishonest money laundering
For the information: the 2020 civil servants declaration campaign was closed on April 1, 2021.
