上海,5月13日(新华社)——渣打银行(SCB)最近完成了第一笔使用区块链的人民币国际信用证交易,这标志着支持人民币的市场迈出了重要一步。


这笔交易是中国钢铁制造商宝钢(Baosteel)与澳大利亚矿业巨头必和必拓(里约热内卢Tinto)在开放贸易融资网络Contour上达成的。据SCB称,这是铁矿石行业首笔以人民币结算的无纸化交易。


渣打银行补充称,力拓和宝钢的合作也表明,在实体文件交付可能更具挑战性的情况下,数字倡议如何能够有效提高跨境贸易融资流动的效率和安全性。


渣打银行跟单贸易全球主管Samuel Mathew表示:“我们很高兴在如此重要的交易中扮演了数字信用证开证行这一重要角色,这标志着两家银行通过区块链进行的首个人民币国际信用证交易。”他预计接下来还会有更多交易。


SCB是Contour的创始银行和股东之一。

 

SHANGHAI, May 13 (Xinhua) -- Standard Chartered Bank (SCB) has recently facilitated the completion of the first international yuan-denominated Letter of Credit (LC) transaction using blockchain, signifying an important step within the market for supporting the renminbi (RMB).

The transaction was made between Chinese steelmaker Baosteel and Australian mining giant Rio Tinto on Contour, an open trade finance network. It is the first paperless deal in the iron ore industry to be transacted in RMB, according to SCB.

The collaboration between Rio Tinto and Baosteel also showcases how digital initiatives can effectively enhance the efficiency and security of cross-border trade finance flow, at a time when the delivery of physical documentation can be more challenging, SCB added.

"We are delighted to have played an important role as the digital LC issuing bank in such a significant trade which marks the first RMB-denominated international LC between two banks via blockchain," said Samuel Mathew, global head of documentary trade, Standard Chartered, expecting more transactions to follow.

SCB is one of the founding banks and shareholders of Contour.
