日本新闻媒体称,七国集团将讨论央行数字货币

2020-7-23 14:44

 

据日本共同社报道,今年晚些时候的G7会议将讨论央行数字货币(CBDC),以分享知识。它声称是日本政府提出的建议和美国的积极回应。日本银行上周正式成立了一个数字货币工作组。


该报告称,这个话题是为了回应中国在CBDC研究方面的领先地位,中国的数字元已经开始试验。这是对美元主导地位的潜在挑战。在2019年6月宣布Facebook的天秤座之后,七国集团迅速成立了一个关于稳定蛋白的工作组,并在4个月后发表了一份报告。


看看七国集团(G7)的成员国,就会发现大多数成员国已经在某种程度上参与了CBDC的研究。英国、加拿大和日本已经花费了数年的时间进行研究,并且各自发表了关于这个话题的多份重要报告。法国最近开始了测试,并与七国集团成员国德国一起参与了国际清算银行(BIS)欧洲创新中心的工作,该中心正在探索CBDC。最近,美国联邦储备委员会表示,它正在监控CBDC的发展。七国集团中唯一没有参与CBDC研究的成员国是意大利,尽管它最近表达了兴趣。


此外,已经有六个国家同意在CBDC研究上进行合作,包括加拿大、英国、日本和欧洲,当然欧洲还不是一个国家。因此,七国集团中唯一缺少的成员就是美国。美国正在国际清算银行创新中心进行合作,该创新中心由七国集团稳定蛋白工作组的负责人伯努瓦·克莱领导。所以这条新闻很有意义。


然而,七国集团峰会已经从美国戴维营会议转变为虚拟会议,并被推迟,没有具体日期,可能是9月。此外,特朗普总统还建议加入其他成员国,包括前八国集团成员国俄罗斯以及澳大利亚、韩国和印度。


值得注意的缺席是中国和它的数字人民币。

 

Japanese news outlet Kyodo reports that the G7 meetings later this year will include discussions about central bank digital currency (CBDC) to share knowledge. It claims the Japanese government made the suggestion and the United States responded positively. The Bank of Japan formally set up a digital currency working group just last week. 

The report claims the topic is in response to China’s lead in CBDC research with its digital yuan already starting trials. And it’s a potential challenge to the U.S. dollar’s dominance. Following the June 2019 announcement of Facebook’s Libra, the G7 rapidly set up a working group on stablecoins and published a report just four months later.

If one looks at G7 members, most are already involved in CBDC research at some level. The UKCanada and Japan have spent several years researching, and each published multiple major reports on the topic. France has recently started tests and, together with fellow G7 member Germany, is involved in the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) Innovation Hub for Europe, which explores CBDC. More recently, the U.S. Federal Reserve has said it’s monitoring CBDC developments. The only G7 member not involved in CBDC research is Italy, although it recently expressed an interest.

Additionally, six countries have already agreed to collaborate on CBDC research, including Canada, England, Japan and Europe, which of course is not yet one country. So the only missing G7 member is the U.S. and it is collaborating in the BIS Innovation Hub headed by Benoît Coeuré, who leads the G7 working group on stablecoins. So the news makes a lot of sense.

However, the G7 summit has been converted from a U.S. Camp David gathering to a virtual conference and postponed without a specific date but possibly September. Furthermore, President Trump has suggested adding other members, including former G8 participant Russia as well as Australia, South Korea and India.

The notable absence is China and its digital renminbi.
