At a gathering on Saturday, Chinese economist Chen Yulu described how the yuan might develop into a world currency relative to the dollar and the euro, according to the South China Morning Post. A paper by Renmin University on how China may increase the yuan’s international significance was released at the event. Currently serving as president of Nankai University, Chen formerly served as vice governor of the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) from October 2015 to August 2022.

By 2035, three conditions must be met for the yuan to become a currency on par with the US dollar and the euro.

Nobel laureate Paul Krugman and others argue that the Chinese yuan will not displace the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency, despite the view of some that it will gain control. Aleksei Mozhin, the executive director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for Russia, stated in June that a rising number of nations are transitioning to trade in Chinese yuan, not only with China but also with other nations.
