At a summit meeting in December 2011, China and Japan agreed to improve cooperation on developing their financial markets. The agreement covers the settlement of cross-border trade and investment using the two currencies, the direct exchange of the two currencies, the purchase of Chinese government bonds by the Japanese government, and the development of financial products denominated in the two currencies. Although the agreement should be seen against a backdrop of international competition over offshore renminbi markets, it presents Japan's private sector with new opportunities to raise and invest renminbi funds.
