[Hong Kong, September 3, 2003] By December, Hong Kong will begin using the new 100 and 500 dollar bills, which apply the latest technology for countering imitations. By fall of 2004, the new bills for 20, 50, and 1,000 Hong Kong dollars will be put in circulation.

The main purpose of releasing such new bills is to rebuild confidence in Hong Kong's prosperity, says a government spokesperson.
