日本官员呼吁尽快开发数字日元以对抗中国

2020-2-11 11:42

 

另一位日本议员公开呼吁快速发展数字日元。


日本自民党银行和金融系统研究委员会主席Kozo Yamamoto今天表示,日本应该在两到三年内创造出一种数字日元。


据路透社2月10日报道,山本聪表示,日本央行的数字货币(CBDC)计划应该包括在政府的年中政策指导方针中。他解释说,数字货币可以在新兴经济体中迅速传播,并帮助正在制定CBDC的中国推进其数字霸权。正因为如此,他说,数字日元的发展必须迅速:


“越快越好。我们将起草建议,纳入政府的政策指导方针,并有望在两到三年内实现。[…如果每个国家都设法用自己的(数字)货币来控制货币流动,就可以防止危机期间出现大幅波动,并稳定本国经济。”


山本聪发表上述言论之前,日本前经济大臣、执政党成员甘利明(Akira Amari)曾表示,他希望发行CBDC,以对抗中国即将到来的数字人民币。Yamamoto承认,尽管cbdc的扩散可能削弱美元的霸主地位,但它也可能稳定依赖美元的新兴市场,如柬埔寨。

 

日本推动数字货币研究


日本国会议员最近呼吁日本政府推动将数字货币列入今年七国集团(G7)的议程。此外,日本央行(Bank of Japan)副行长曾在1月底表示,如果公众需求因技术发展而激增,该行必须准备好发行CBDC。


与此同时,中国央行最近完成了数字人民币的顶层设计和联合测试。

 

Another Japanese lawmaker has publicly called for the swift development of the digital yen.

 

The head of the banking and finance systems research commission at Japan's Liberal Democratic Party, Kozo Yamamoto, said today that the country should create a digital yen in two to three years.

 

Reuters reported on Feb. 10 that Yamamoto said that plans for its central bank digital currency (CBDC) should be included in the government’s mid-year policy guidelines. He explained that digital currencies could quickly spread in emerging economies and help China — who is working on a CBDC — advance its digital hegemony. Because of this, he said that development of the digital yen must be quick:

 

“The sooner the better. We’ll draft proposals to be included in government’s policy guidelines, and hopefully make it happen in two-to-three years. [...] If each country manages to control flows of money with their own (digital) currencies, that could prevent a big swing at a time of crisis and stabilize their own economy.”

 

Yamamoto’s remarks follow those of former economy minister and ruling party member Akira Amari, who said that he wants to issue a CBDC to counter China’s upcoming digital yuan. Yamamoto admitted that, while the spread of CBDCs may undermine the dollar’s supremacy, it could also stabilize emerging markets relying on the dollar such as Cambodia.

 

Japan’s push for digital currency research

 

Japanese lawmakers have recently called on their government to push for digital currencies to be placed on the G7’s agenda this year. Furthermore, at the end of January, the deputy governor of the Bank of Japan has said the institution must be ready to issue a CBDC should public demand surge in response to technical developments.

 

Meanwhile, the central bank of China recently completed the top-layer design and joint testing of the digital yuan.
