Hello

 

Sorry I have not been updating this website lately.  Life has been quite hectic for me in the last few months.  But I have been enjoying myself, spending quite a lot more time playing golf, travelling and watching with interest the developments in international finance.  I managed to make a few speeches too, one in Toronto in September on the “Role of China in International Finance”, one in Beijing earlier this month on “The International Monetary System and the Renminbi” and one in Singapore just yesterday on “Lessons learnt from Financial Crises – A Central Banker’s Perspective”.  Links to these speeches are given below for those interested in reading them.

有朋友問我, 在6月21日发表的人民币離岸市场的文章(只有英文版)裏的第8段第2句說的”不分割的支持”的意義是什么.  今天人民银行公布了利用香港人民币清萛行為台湾地区提供人民币現鈔清萛服务, 沒有另起爐灶, 便是不分割的支持的好例子, 可喜可賀.

I was asked what I meant by “undivided support” in the second sentence of paragraph 9 of my Inaugural Lecture delivered on 21 June 2010 on the Off-shore renminbi market.  Today the People’s Bank of China gave a very good example of such “undivided support” to develop Hong Kong as the off-shore renminbi market.  The renminbi Settlement Bank in Hong Kong is tasked to provide renminbi settlement services to Taiwan.

今天早上参加了一間中学的畢業典禮, 並发言.  其实, 我很少有機會面对中學生講人生觀. 雖然不知道我的发言是否合適, 但对我來說是一次很有趣的经驗.  現附上講詞, 請指教.

I attended a graduation ceremony of a secondary school this morning and delivered a speech.  I seldom get an opportunity to talk to secondary school students about things that may be of interest to them.  It was quite an experience, although I do not know whether it was an appropriate speech for the occasion.  The speech is attached for those interested to read.

大家好. 6月初又去了一次北海道自駕遊, 到了洞爺湖, 函館, 小樽和札榥. 覺得函館特別好, 可能是以前沒去过的原因. 海胆, 鲜鮑, 北寄貝, 毛蟹, 每樣都很美味. 在这月份竟仍看到很燦爛的櫻花, 实在很驚喜. 附上几幀相片與大家分享.

下週一, 即6月21日, 全球经济金融研究所有演講活动. 我会就人民币離岸中心的課題发言. 发言後会將講詞在此上網, 請指正. 很抱歉, 只有英文.

Hello, everyone. My wife and I made another trip to Hokkaido in early June. We did Lake Toya, Hakodate, Otaru and then Sapporo. Hakodate crowned it all, possibly because it was the first time there for us. The sea food was fantastic. Sea urchin the size of your fist was only 1,000 yen. And surprisingly the cherry trees were still blooming. Herewith a few photographs to share with readers.

Next Monday, 21 June 2010, I will be delivering one of the Inaugural Lectures of the Institute of Global Economics and Finance. I will speak on the off-shore renminbi market. I will put the speech on this site for those interested.

大家好 Hello

 

很抱歉,很久沒有和大家溝通了。自從四月在中文大学全球经济金融研究所的工作開展後,我忙於協助研究所將未來幾年的研究議題定下來,同時又要特別留意国际金融近期令人擔心的发展,所以个多月未有「招呼」大家。 可能是因為我和美国財長蓋特納曾经見面的關係,最近有頗多朋友問我對人民幣的看法,這也是我一直非常関心的範圍。所以,我会利用於本月19日在新加坡演講的机会,发表一下我的意見,供大家參考。在演講发表後,我会將演詞放在這個網址上。

任志刚

 

Sorry for not communicating with you here for over a month. I have been busy with the work at the new Institute of Global Economics and Finance at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, trying to help out in determining the research agenda of the Institute for the next few years. I have also been busy observing and studying recent, worrying developments in international finance. There have been a number of requests for my views on the renminbi, perhaps because I had the opportunity of meeting with Secretary Geithner when he came through here on his way to Beijing. This, of course, is also a subject matter of great interest to me. I will therefore make use of the opportunity of delivering a keynote address at a conference to be held in Singapore on 19 May to give my view of the subject. I will put the speech on this website after delivery of the speech.
