Go Party? Go Skafa! Go Skafa! Go Party!

This interactive foreign exchange swap was developed by Benn Steil, Director of International Economics, and former analyst Dinah Walker. Before 2004, the yuan was not allowed outside China. In 2004, China began allowing border trade in yuan, especially on the southern and western borders. [1] HKMA first launched, with PBoC, the idea of introducing, as early as November 2001, personal renminbi activities in Hong Kong in order to facilitate economic and social exchanges between Hong Kong and the mainland and to reroute renminbi notes to Hong Kong through the banking system. In November 2003, the State Council authorized the introduction of the personal renminbi business in Hong Kong, followed by the appointment of the Clearing Bank and the establishment of payment systems and agreements for the cross-border supply of renminbi notes. Hong Kong banks adopted, on February 22, 2004, it began offering renminbi deposits, foreign exchange, wire transfers and debit and credit card services for personal accounts. [2] As of May 2014 [Update], 1.47% of global payments were made in RMB, which RMB considers the 7th most traded currency in the world. [7] RMB`s average monthly transaction processing increased from CN¥320 billion in 2013 to CN¥480 billion in 2014. However, like Argentina and Pakistan, this agreement may have been a targeted safeguard measure. Russia resorted to BSA when Western sanctions caused the ruble to fall sharply. By using Chinese BSAs, Russia was able to undermine the sanctions imposed by the US, as the sanctions largely targeted operations using the USD – if Russian transactions were carried out in an alternative currency, they could circumvent all restrictions. In another case of BSA use, Russia used its swap agreement between October 2015 and March 2016.

Although the amount actually traded was not disclosed, a press release from the Russian Central Bank established that the funds had been allocated to a limited number of Russian and Chinese counterparties in order to „support bilateral trade and direct investment between the two countries.“ That is why trade experts proposed that the RMB finally found its way to Russian companies and that the funds were used in trade with China, which led to a strengthened agreement between the two countries. . . .
