新加坡金融管理局欢迎与中国开展数字货币合作

2020-6-23 12:32

 

新加坡是率先开展中央银行数字货币(CBDC)研究的国家之一,开展了多阶段的Ubin项目。上周,新加坡金融管理局(MAS)总裁拉维•梅农(Ravi Menon)就新加坡和上海之间的金融合作发表演讲,他对与中国人民银行(PBoC)在数字货币方面的合作表示欢迎。


他表示,Ubin项目的目的是降低跨境支付成本,加快结算速度,确保安全。关于与中国人民银行的合作,中国媒体报道称,梅农表示,他期待与中国在这一领域的密切合作。


就CBDC而言,中国被视为最先进的主要经济体。它的“数字元”还在测试阶段,最近有一张测试中使用的钱包截图被泄露。


在新加坡最近的Ubin项目中,MAS与摩根大通(JP Morgan)和国有企业淡马锡(Temasek)合作,在多币种交易中使用CBDC。摩根大通有自己的JPM硬币,一种用于区块链在线支付的美元的标记版本。


当时,MAS的一位发言人告诉Ledger Insights:“我们鼓励与其他央行以及商业银行进一步合作,探索可能的跨境合作,可能使用其他区块链平台或技术解决方案,并将其他外币纳入Ubin测试网络。”


上周,梅农在2020陆家嘴论坛上发表了演讲,中国媒体报道了这一数字货币言论。这些评论并不是官方记录的一部分,我们已经请求MAS的确认。


梅农在视频会议上表示,中新关系在发展离岸人民币市场方面取得了进展。自2013年以来,中国工商银行一直是新加坡的人民币清算银行。新加坡是世界上最大的离岸人民币存款和贸易融资中心,也是第二大离岸人民币外汇交易中心。


梅农说:“今年,新加坡-上海综合合作委员会金融工作组也将成立,这将促进两市金融机构参与跨境人民币业务和产品创新等多个领域。”


他还概述了其他合作,以及探索资助更绿色、更可持续的经济的潜力。

 

Singapore is one of the nations that has led research into central bank digital currencies (CBDC) with its multi-phase Project Ubin. In a speech last week about financial cooperation between Singapore and Shanghai, Ravi Menon, the Managing Director of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), welcomed cooperation with the People’s Bank of China (PBoC) on digital currency.

He commented that the aim of Project Ubin was to reduce cross border payment costs, speed up settlement and ensure security. Concerning cooperating with the PBoC, Chinese media reported that Mr Menon said he looked forward to close cooperation with China in this area. 

China is viewed as the most advanced major economy when it comes to CBDC. Its digital yuan is in the testing phase, and a screenshot of a screenshot of a wallet being used in trials was recently leaked. 

In the most recent iteration of Singapore’s Project Ubin, MAS collaborated with JP Morgan and state-backed conglomerate Temasek to use CBDC in multi currency transactions. JP Morgan has its JPM Coin, a tokenized version of dollars for onchain blockchain payments.

At the time, a MAS spokesperson told Ledger Insights: “We are encouraging further collaboration with other central banks, as well as commercial banks, to explore possible cross-border collaboration that may use other blockchain platforms or technology solutions, and to include other foreign currencies on the Ubin test network.”

Chinese media reported the digital currency comments following a speech made last week by MAS’ Menon as part of the Lujiazui Forum 2020. The comments were not part of the official transcript and we’ve requested confirmation from MAS. 

In the video conference, Menon noted that the China-Singapore relationship had made progress in growing the offshore renminbi (RMB) market. Chinese state bank ICBC has been a RMB clearing bank in Singapore since 2013. Singapore is the largest offshore center for RMB deposits and RMB trade finance and the second largest offshore foreign exchange trading center for RMB.

“This year will also see the launch of the Singapore-Shanghai Comprehensive Cooperation Council Financial Working Group, which will facilitate financial institutions in our two cities to participate in various areas such as cross-border RMB business and product innovation,” said Menon.

He also outlined other collaborations and the potential to explore finance to aid in a greener and more sustainable economy.
