How China is Building a Global Currency

Chatham House, London


Dr Paola Subacchi, Research Director, International Economics, Chatham House; Author, The People's Money: How China is Building a Global Currency

Chair: James Kynge, Emerging Markets Editor, The Financial Times


While many of the world's major economies boast dominant international currencies, China’s renminbi has lagged far behind the euro and the dollar. Drawing on the themes of her new book, The People's Money: How China is Building a Global Currency, Dr Paola Subacchi will contend that China’s economic policies have driven development at the expense of the renminbi's growth and that the underpowered currency is now threatening China's economy. Arguing that increasing the renminbi’s reach will be crucial to securing the nation's future, she will consider how China could now strengthen the currency without losing control of the economy or risking collapse.

To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.

This event is only open to Major Corporate Member and Partner organizations of Chatham House. If you would like to register your interest, please RSVP to Linda Bedford. We will contact you to confirm your attendance.
