>A statement from the bank indicated its Shanghai branch has been granted an RMB licence by the Chinese Banking Regulatory Commission, which CBA said will help widen the “Australia-China corridor”.

“Our clients can already open RMB accounts, settle trades in RMB and enjoy executing RMB electronically using our CommBiz Markets platform with single sign on settlements capability,” said CBA executive general manager, international institutional banking and markets, James Rickward.

“The RMB licence increases our ability to deliver holistic tailored solutions that maximise business opportunities and minimise risk for our cross-border clients.”

CBA opened its first institutional banking branch in China in 2010, followed by a second branch in Beijing in 2013.
