CFA Society of Melbourne invites you to a lunchtime presentation

RMB Internationalisation: What is the future of the offshore RMB market?

The major reforms shaping China’s economy will undoubtedly have impacts on the global economy and financial markets. In this presentation, Chi Lo, Greater China Senior Economist for BNP Paribas Investment Partners, will cover the progress of the RMB internationalisation process and the future of the offshore RMB market. He will explore how trade will remain the key conduit for deepening RMB internationalisation and financial transactions will be the next step to advance the process in the medium-term.

Being a Special Drawing Right component currency is a medium-term signpost for China’s financial liberalisation and RMB internationalisation progress. Chi will address how the “New Silk Road” strategy will further consolidate the internationalisation effort while at the same time will help China to balance the economy and revive commodity demand. He will also discuss how this will be a supportive factor for the commodity market and, hence, Australia.
