New Zealand's central bank has announced plans to introduce renminbi as one of the country's foreign currency reserves.
新西兰央行宣布计划将人民币作为该国的外汇储备之一。 New Zealand thus benetes only the second country after the UK to introduce the Chinese currency as a reserve currency. The RMB will benete the second largest reserve currency with a 20 percent weight, second only to the Australian dollar, which currently1 holds a 22 percent weight. Meanwhile, the US dollar slid from top spot with 31 percent into third place with a 12 percent weight. The New Zealand central bank says the weight of each foreign reserve currency is decided2 by the volume of the country's bilateral3 trade with New Zealand. Last year, China became New Zealand's biggest trading partner and biggest export market with total bilateral trade hitting a record high of over 18 billion New Zealand dollars. For more on this, we are now joined live by Gao Shang, analyst4 with Guantong Futures5.
