China opens up its Forex markets to foreign central banks

As China continues to accelerate the internationalization of the Yuan currency, a new element was introduced on Nov. 25 which will facilitate expanding its reach even further.  The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) opened up its Forex markets to foreign central banks, and will now allow these institutions to participate in swaps, options, and other Forex products.
Seven institutions will be part of the initial phase into foreign participation of China’s Forex market, and they include: Hong Kong Monetary Authority, Reserve Bank of Australia, Hungarian National Bank, International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, International Development Association, World Bank Group Trust Funds, and GIC Private Limited.
