The End of Euro-Dollar Supremacy: Will the Renminbi become the Global Currency?

June 16 2011
Venue: Edelman, The Centre, Avenue Marnix 22, 1000 Brussels
Speakers: Frank LavinnBaudouin RegoutnRazeen SallynShahin ValléenJill Craig
Time: 18:00

Is China’s magnificent rise in the world economy increasing the appetite in Beijing to establish the Chinese currency, the Renminbi (RMB), as the leading world currency? China is advancing RMB internationalisation and increasingly takes away restrictions against using the currency for trade and current account transactions. Yet restrictions have not been lifted for all transactions – and capital account liberalisation, including a move to free convertibility, remains a highly charged issue in China.

Moreover, China’s financial sector is fragile. It is intransparent and closed for many foreign firms to such a degree that makes foreign actors suspicious about the stability of the RMB. Will China be able to do all the reforms required for the RMB to become a global currency alongside the dollar and the euro?
