Readers may wish to read the attached paper that I have just completed on the subject of capital account convertibility for the renminbi. In the paper I examined a number of issues relevant to achieving capital account convertibility for the renminbi. I made what I think is an important distinction between full convertibility and free convertibility, and urged the Mainland authorities carefully to go for the former, having regard to the stage of financial development on the Mainland and the risks to monetary and financial stability of free capital account convertibility. I ended the paper recommending a strategy for achieving capital account convertibility for the renminbi. My apologies for only providing an English version of the paper.
