Autumn 2013

Picture Perfect

In this issue of Exchange we look at how an original image is converted into an effective banknote portrait that wins the public trust.

We also consider the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) and how Governments around the world might go about implementing the Framework’s requirements.

We explore the current banknote security feature trends that are helping central banks defeat counterfeiters and reassure the public, and we take a look at Fiji’s stunning and award-winning new currency series.

Mike Anderson, Direction General, International and Immigration Policy, at the Home Office, discusses how the UK is addressing the challenges of a growth in travel and an increase in the number of visa applications.

And we explore how the Public Key Directory, a global system set up by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), is helping to ensure that ePassports are checked quickly and effectively.
