Local banks visit Lusophone countries to promote financial platform

Banco Nacional Ultramarino (BNU) and Bank of China – Macau Branch (BOC) were part of a delegation, headed by the Monetary Authority of Macao, to three Portuguese-speaking countries in Africa last month: Mozambique, Angola and Cape Verde.

The delegation sought to promote Macau as a financial platform between China and the Portuguese-speaking countries, fostering the use of the RMB in financial transactions between the parties.

This visit was also intended to gather information about current conditions on the use of the Chinese currency in said countries, including existing obstacles and opportunities.

According to a statement issued by BNU, during the visit BNU was also invited to participate in a seminar, organized by BOC in Angola, with the theme “Macau – RMB Clearing Center for the Portuguese Speaking Countries.”
