Are these the 16 countries Algorand is in CBDC talks with?

I came across [this website](https://www.atlanticcouncil.org/cbdctracker) that tracks central bank digital currency (CBDC) projects. ​ During a [discussion at the Benzinga CryptoFestival](https://www.reddit.com/r/algorand/comments/pfcg6s/algorand_actively_engaged_in_16_cbdcs/), Barry Finkelstein of Algorand displayed a chart showing 16 active CBDC projects. Guess how many countries (including the Euro Area) currently have a CBDC project in "development"? **16!** ​ Here they are: * Canada * Haiti * Jamaica * Brazil * France * Euro area * Switzerland * Nigeria * South Africa * Turkey * Israel * Bahrain * Russia * Japan * Mauritius * Lebanon ​ Could it just be a coincidence? Maybe - there are 32 other countries in the "research" stage so maybe there is some overlap. Either way, exciting developments underway!
