The workshop will include three sub-sessions that will focus on the following topics: 1) the contributing factor of the growth in the RMB cross-border usage; 2) the role of financial centres in the offshore RMB market; and 3) macroeconomic and financial implications of China’s free trade zone. 

This event will follow the first research workshop that was held on 1 July at Chatham House and is part of the joint research project supported by British Academy between the Chatham House International Economics department and the Institute of World Economics and Politics (IWEP) at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, entitled 'The development of the RMB offshore market and the liberalization of China’s capital account'.
