China to open its interbank currency market for foreign central banks – Chinese PM Li

FXStreet (Mumbai) - Speaking at a World Economic Forum (WEF) in Dalian, China’s Prime Minister Li Keqiang said that China plans to allow foreign central banks into its interbank currency market, although he didn't indicate any time frame or details of the measure.

The decision follows an earlier decision from March to allow some foreign investors into the interbank bond market.
