ECB alters external communication policy

The European Central Bank (ECB) has changed the way it distributes its Annual Report.

The Governing Council has decided that to reduce the large-scale printing of the ECB's Annual Report, from 2013 onwards the central bank will stop providing hard copies unless readers "actively register" to continue their subscription.

The publication will remain available online, both in PDF format in 21 official EU languages and, in English, also in an e-PUB version.
