Prior the event the Educational Committee organized a seminar on “RMB denominated LC trades” alongside with its developments and challenges. Interesting and informative presentations delivered by Dr. Weixin Huang from Rabobank and ITFA Board Member Charles Brough. During the presentation Dr. Weixin Huang argued that the Chinese government is making increasing efforts in encouraging the currency to be used in international trade. He elaborated that these efforts seem to have positive effect testified by increasing volumes of trades settled in RMB worldwide. One of the main challenges pointed out by Dr. Huang is the allocation in terms of percentage of total LC volume of RMB denominated LCs due to lack of a secondary market for RMB LCs.

Champagne and other drinks along with canapés were served while counterparts met each other and discussed the developments in the markets.
