Big Issue Debates

The real game changer may be approaching faster than you think

Introducing this year’s final Big Issue Debate, which takes place on ASEAN Day

The Chinese economy has blossomed in recent years. Its expansion has been underpinned by the increased use of the Renminbi (RMB), which is now the 5th most traded currency.

The global RMB network offers international corporations and investors a greater degree of access into Chinese markets, with RMB hubs also driving the growth of the currency well beyond Chinese borders.

Leading figures from across Asia’s financial landscape will come together in Singapore to debate the internationalisation of the RMB and the implications for the industry.

Alain Raes, Chief Executive EMEA and APAC, SWIFT, looks ahead to the session.
