Its objectives include multi-lateral settlement of current account payments, conservation of forex, promotion of monitory cooperation among central banks, increasing relationship among banking system of member-countries and providing currency swap arrangements. It is basically a clearing and settlement organisation.
The annual meeting of the ACU is hosted by member-countries on rotation. It is scheduled to be held in Iran next year and in Pakistan the year after.
