MOSCOW, December 28. /TASS/. About 20 mln cards of Mir national payment system may be issued in 2017, Chairperson of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina said on Wednesday in an interview with Rossiya 24 TV Channel.
"We view the next year as the most important from standpoint of increasing the number of cards. We believe about 20 mln cards may be issued," she said.
