The global use of the Chinese yuan is one highlight of China's financial reforms over about a decade, Pan Gongsheng, deputy head of the People's Bank of China (PBOC) said at a meeting Monday.
Pan said China would gradually make the RMB capital account convertible, consolidate market-oriented interest rate reform and improve macro prudential regulation.
In 2018, the central bank will "continue optimizing policies on cross-border RMB use, improving the infrastructure for the global use of RMB, meeting the reasonable demands of market entities and pushing the global use of RMB to a new level," said a statement released after the meeting.
