China’s digital yuan is the first official digital currency to be issued by a major economy. Undergoing public testing in a range of Chinese cities, it aims to be cheaper and faster than existing financial transactions. At the Beijing Olympics, foreign athletes and others have been able to use the currency for the first time.
ACBC is hosting a webinar to hear from leading experts on the digital yuan, and what it may mean for international businesses. Our experts will examine questions such as:
- What is the outlook for the uptake of China’s digital currency?
- How will it change China’s financial system?
- Will it affect the way business is conducted there?
- What are its implications for privacy?
- What is the prognosis for interoperability with future digital currencies around the world?
This webinar will introduce businesses to critical issues they need to understand as they plan their future engagement with the China market.
