Renminbi enters world’s top 5 currencies for payments

The renminbi has clocked up another important milestone on its march towards internationalisation – breaking into the top five most used payment currencies in the world.        

人民币已跻身全球使用最多的五大支付货币之列,在国际化进程中跨越了另一个重要里程碑。
     
According to data from Swift, 2.17 per cent of the world's payments were conducted using the Chinese currency in December, putting it above both the Canadian and Australian dollars for the first time writes the FT's Josh Noble in Hong Kong.    

根据环球银行金融电信协会的数据,去年12月,全球有2.17%的支付以人民币结算,其比例首次超过加元和澳元。
     
The renminbi now sits just behind the yen in terms of transactions, with the pound, the euro and the dollar completing the top five. During 2014, payments made in the Chinese currency more than doubled from the previous year.    

从交易来看,人民币现在仅次于日元,与英镑、欧元和美元共同组成全球五大支付货币。2014年,人民币支付金额是前一年的两倍多。
     
Swift's Wim Raymaekers said the latest data confirmed the renminbi's "transition from an 'emerging' to a 'business as usual' payment currency".    

Swift的维姆·瑞梅克斯表示,最新数据证实,人民币“正从‘新兴’支付货币过渡为‘常用’支付货币”。
     
Beijing has taken a number of steps to help boost use of its currency in the past year, such as broadening renminbi investment options and setting up clearing banks in a number of international financial centres.    

过去一年,中国政府采取了多项措施,帮助扩大人民币的使用范围,例如增加人民币投资选择,以及在多个全球金融中心设立清算银行。
     
The renminbi's globalisation project could move up another gear later this year. In June, MSCI will rule on whether Chinese equities should be included in its emerging markets index, potentially drawing in billions of dollars of new investment.    

今年晚些时候,人民币国际化进程可能会加速。今年6月,摩根士丹利资本国际将就中国股指是否应被纳入其新兴市场指数做出决定,如果结果是肯定的,这可能会吸引数十亿美元新投资。
     
And at the end of this year, the IMF will carry out a review of its Special Drawing Rights system, which could lead to the renminbi being declared an official reserve currency.    

今年底,国际货币基金组织将对其特别提款权体系展开评估,人民币可能会被列为官方储备货币。
