China gives birth to yuan-ruble payment system
China has already rolled out a payment versus payment (PVP) system for Russian ruble and Chinese yuan transactions for the purpose of reducing risks and improving the overall efficiency of its foreign exchange transactions.
The fresh PVP system for ruble and yuan transactions was officially launched on Monday after getting approval from China's major financial institution.
That’s the first time a PVP system has been created for trading the yuan as well as foreign currencies, as follows from the statement, published on the website of the China Foreign Exchange Trade System on Wednesday.
