China may be the world's second largest economy today, but has its financial system caught up? An expert panel examines the issues surrounding the internationalization of the RMB.
Held in association with The University of Hong Kong, the Fung Global Institute's public seminar on China's Financial Future discussed possible ways forward for China's powerful currency, the Renminbi, and addressed issues and potential concerns triggered by China's Shadow Banking sector.
