RMB internationalization continues to accelerate with the RMB use growing in both cross-border trade and investment. The growth of the offshore RMB markets has spurred investor interest, from central banks to financial institutions and individual investors. Recognizing the need for RMB internationalization, Chinese authorities seem to be embarking on an accelerated pace of reforms.

Topics will include:

  • Growth in the use of RMB internationally for trade, as well as by corporates.
  • Increased investor participation in RMB by accessing onshore China market or investing in offshore RMB products
  • Developments in access programs.
  • Role and function of offshore RMB markets and new offshore RMB centers.
  • RMB as a component of central bank reserve management and de facto reserve currency.
  • Implications on global trade and investment.
