Yuan-rouble pay system improved
China has established a payment versus payment system for Chinese yuan and Russian rouble transactions in a move to reduce risks and improve the efficiency of its foreign exchange transactions. The PVP system for yuan and rouble transactions was launched on Monday after receiving approval from China’s central bank, according to a statement by the country’s foreign exchange trading system. It marks the first time a PVP system has been established for trading the yuan and foreign currencies, said the statement, which was posted on Wednesday on the website of the China Foreign Exchange Trade System. PVP systems allow simultaneous settlement of transactions in two different currencies.
