The RMB internationalisation project

The third plenum has reinforced the policy for domestic reform, essential to the modernisation of China’s financial system. China’s progress in the internationalisation of the renminbi and the opening of its capital account is outlined by Andrew Malcolm, Linklaters Partner – Capital Markets, who discusses key currency developments and the growing importance of the Dim Sum bond and related markets.
