Roundtables

Roundtables & Working Groups

Since 1999, CBP has hosted closed-door specialised discussion forums for central bankers and the community.

Topics addressed over the years have included: reserve management, accounting frameworks, equities, gold, the renminbi, technology and payments. The agenda for the meetings, which take place in an intimate roundtable format and are targeted at senior policymakers and managers, is tailored each year to the needs of the participants.

In 2014 we launched a series of roundtable events in partnership with Bank of China (Hong Kong) focussing on the Renminbi, its internationalisation and use as a reserve currency. Attendees of this inaugural Renminbi Roundtable were unanimous in agreeing that this one-day event is an invaluable opportunity to come to gain detailed, practical insights into the renminbi and hear - first-hand - experiences of investing from central bank peers.

In the past year, Central Banking Publications has held roundtables in Abu Dhabi, Kuala Lumpur, Madrid, Vienna and Rome, these one day events provide an invaluable opportunity to gain detailed, practical insights into the Renminbi. In response to continued demand from reserve managers, Central Banking Publications, in partnership with Bank of China (Hong Kong), will hold its 6th Renminbi Roundtable on May 10th in Mexico City 2017.

The format limits participation to 30 delegates, so please indicate your interest in participating as soon as possible by contacting, Naomi Grice at [email protected].

About the Renminbi Roundtable
The recent pace of renminbi internationalisation has been rapid. In a few short years, China's currency has established itself as a de facto reserve currency, held by around 60 central banks. The reasons for this rise are clear: China is now the second largest economy in the world and the renminbi has become the 7th most used currency for payments. It will surely go higher.

The reserve manager's dilemma
Yet, while the economic arguments appear indisputable, from a practical reserve manager's point of view, many questions remain. There are concerns of the renminbi's convertibility, the depth of capital markets, issuer quality and market infrastructure
