Cross-border RMB settlement rising

Xinhua, November 5, 2014 Adjust font size:

Cross-border RMB settlement has been rising as enterprises are positive about RMB internationalization, said a report from the Bank of China (BOC) on Tuesday.

The report surveyed 3,162 companies across 22 countries and regions.

It showed that about 26 percent of enterprises used RMB in more than 15 percent of their transactions. The first figure is 10 percentage points up from that in the previous survey made last year.

So far this year, about 41 percent of overseas enterprises have settled using RMB with business partners from outside the Chinese mainland, especially with business partners from Japan, the Republic of Korea, Europe and America. The figure was only 10 percent in 2013.

Both domestic and overseas enterprises are positive on prospects for the RMB and the trend for the currency's internationalization will not change, said Yue Yi, vice governor of the BOC.
