Commercial banks in the country, including the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL), will today, December 31, be closed for business to the public as they observe “Bankers’ Day”.
The day is set aside by the CBL every year (December 31) to give commercial banks the opportunity to compile their annual financial statements, which will be presented to the government through the Central Bank.
Meanwhile, customers will still be able to access their accounts via electronic services such as ATMs and online banking. Banks will resume operation on Saturday January 2, 2016. However, that day being the first Saturday of the month (Mary Broh Day), banks are expected to open not earlier than 10 a.m. and will still close by noon.
