Taiwan moves forward in launching RMB-based financial services

l  Beijing recently took a key step forward in making Taipei the next Renminbi (RMB) offshore banking center. In fact, the People's Bank of China has just signed a designation pact with the Bank of China's Taipei branch to clear RMB-based transactions in Taiwan.
