BEIJING, September 10, 2014. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and China are discussing setting up a system of interbank transactions which will become an analogue to International banking transaction system SWIFT, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov told PRIME on Wednesday after negotiations in Beijing.

“Yes, we have discussed and we have approved this idea,” he said.

Russian authorities wanted to decrease the financial market’s dependence on SWIFT since the introduction of the first U.S. sanctions, when international payment systems Visa and MasterCard denied services to some Russian banks owned by blacklisted individuals.

According to Shuvalov, Russia has been also discussing establishment of an independent ratings agency with China. Concrete proposals will be made by the end of 2014, he said.

As regards China’s payment system UnionPay cooperation with the yet-to-be-established Russian national payment system, Shuvalov said that UnionPay is ready for a full-scale collaboration and will provide all infrastructural capacities for that.

    Bank of China (Hong Kong) partners with UnionPay International to pioneer the RMB Settlement Service of UnionPay Card for Hong Kong Merchants

    04 Dec 2013 Via: http://www.bochk.com/web/about/press_release/press_release_details.xml?section=about&level_2=press_release&fldr_id=32042&selFldr=32042&pfid=84&cid=61326

    Bank of China (Hong Kong) ( “BOCHK” ) and UnionPay International today jointly announced to pioneer the RMB settlement service of UnionPay Card for merchants in Hong Kong. In addition to providing RMB settlement service for the merchants accepting payments made by UnionPay cards, this initiative will further promote the development of cross-border settlement in RMB and enhance the competitive advantages for Hong Kong merchants.

    The launch ceremony was officiated by Mr Niu Xiaomin, Deputy President of the People’s Bank of China ( “PBOC” ) Guangzhou Branch; Mr Esmond Lee, Executive Director (Financial Infrastructure) of the Hong Kong Monetary Authority; Mr Cai Jianbo, CEO of UnionPay International; Mr Jason Yeung, Deputy Chief Executive of BOCHK; and Mr Dickson So, General Manager of BOC Credit Card (International) Limited ( “BOC Credit Card” ).

    BOC Credit Card is the acquirer of the RMB settlement service of UnionPay Card for merchants in Hong Kong. Sa Sa International Holdings Ltd, Chow Tai Fook Jewellery Co. Ltd, Sogo Hong Kong Co. Ltd, Oriental Watch Group and Yue Hwa Chinese Products Emporium Ltd are among the first batch of participating merchants of the service. They will be able to settle their HKD transactions in HKD or RMB conveniently to save the time required for conversion at banks.

    During his address at the ceremony, Mr Cai Jianbo, CEO of UnionPay International, said, “The RMB settlement service launched by UnionPay International and BOCHK for Hong Kong merchants has opened up a direct channel for acquiring the currency and thus reduces exchange losses. As a result, merchants would be more willing to accept the UnionPay RMB Card, providing better services for the cardholders who wish to acquire and use RMB. Moreover, this new business, which involves circulation and settlement of RMB as the single currency with the UnionPay Card, facilitates the internationalisation of RMB. It also helps expand Hong Kong’s RMB capital pool and promote the development of the offshore RMB business. Through its new offering, UnionPay International will continue to further support Hong Kong acquirers in innovating RMB services, presenting more opportunities to local merchants who accept the UnionPay cards.”

    Mr Jason Yeung, Deputy Chief Executive of BOCHK, said, “BOCHK takes great pleasure in joining hands with UnionPay International to pioneer the RMB settlement service of UnionPay Card for merchants in Hong Kong. In line with the Circular concerning the Simplification of Cross-border RMB Procedures and Improvement of Relevant Policies issued by PBOC in July this year, this initiative will promote the use of RMB by banks, financial institutions and corporations as well as further enhance the efficiency of RMB cross-border settlement. The service will help strengthen the competitiveness of Hong Kong as an offshore RMB business centre and boost growth in cross-border flow of visitors, commodities and capital given the increasingly closer economic ties between Hong Kong and the Mainland.”

    UnionPay International possesses comprehensive service capability in the international credit card market while BOCHK enjoys unique competitive edges in the offshore RMB business. By combining the strengths of both strong franchises, this innovative service helps meet the growing needs for cross-border settlement in RMB. Over 11 million UnionPay cards have been issued by card issuance institutions in Hong Kong, including BOC Credit Card.

    As the market leader in the RMB business in Hong Kong, the BOCHK Group has the most extensive service networks, a diversified range of RMB products and services, a proven track record of cross-border trade and settlement, as well as a strong professional team with sound knowledge of the financial policies and regulations of both Hong Kong and the Mainland markets. Capitalising on its close collaboration with its parent, Bank of China, the BOCHK Group provides quality and professional RMB services to its customers.
