The Internationalization of Renminbi Conference at UC San Diego

World Leaders Gather at UC San Diego to Discuss Internationalization of Chinese Currency

Christine Clark, UCSD News Center

China's economy is growing rapidly, but Chinese currency has yet to join the ranks of the U.S. dollar, euro, yen and sterling pound to become a global reserve currency. Three prominent keynote speakers and many distinguished economists, bankers and business people will give their views on the internationalization of Chinese currency (renminbi or RMB) at the University of California, San Diego June 7 to 8.

The Internationalization of Renminbi Conference, hosted by the 21st Century China program at the School of International Relations and Pacific Studies (IR/PS), is the first major international conference devoted to comprehensive discussions on liberalizing China's currency. The conference will be a unique opportunity to hear various experts engage in in-depth discussions with government officials about the logic behind, and implications of, RMB internationalization––one of the most important issues facing the global economy today. Public registration to the conference is open from May 9 to June 6.
