'Cross-border RMB Settlement within Seconds' Promoted Throughout Henan Province
Greater financial support for high-level opening-up has been provided. Reporter learned from Zhengzhou Central Sub-branch of the People's Bank of China on March 2 that, facilitation scheme for cross-border RMB settlement of high-quality enterprises in Henan has been upgraded, thus doubling the number of companies enjoying the the service of "Cross-border RMB Settlement within Seconds" and expanding the service coverage from within the pilot free trade zone to the entire province.
And what are the criteria for entering the list of high-quality enterprises? Xu Hongfen, deputy director of the Monetary & Credit Management Department of the People's Bank of China's Zhengzhou Central Sub-branch, said, "In addition to being law-abiding and self-disciplined entities, what's more important is that the enterprises can conduct cross-border RMB business in a stable and long-term manner." Henan formulated detailed criteria according to those criteria and the threshold is quite approachable. For example, it needs more than 3 years of normal operation and stable use of cross-border RMB settlement service for more than 1 year or for 50 times, 70 less than previous criteria.
这么好的政策，入选优质企业名单的标准有啥？中国人民银行郑州中心支行货币信贷管理处副处长徐红芬说：“企业除了符合守法自律、实体经营，更重要的是要能长期稳定地开展跨境人民币业务。”为此，我省制定了详细标准，门槛也很“亲民”。比如：正常生产经营3年以上，能够稳定使用跨境人民币结算1年以上，并且使用跨境人民币结算以来累计笔数达50笔，这要少于此前的标准70笔。（中文来源/河南日报 翻译/赵汉青 实习生/黄骞婷 审校/李文竞）
