China's Inroads into the West

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Posted Sep 30, 2015 | Chatham House, Nicola Casarini

China has divested away from the dollar and into the euro so that euro-denominated assets now represent more than a third of China’s foreign currency reserves. China’s financial commitment is likely to reach up to $300 billion in loans for infrastructure and trade financing in coming years - not counting the leveraging effect on private investors and lenders. This includes a $40 billion contribution to the Chinese-led Silk Road Fund for infrastructural developments.  In her paper for Chatham House, Nicola Casarini suggests that the growing Sino-European monetary ties explain the decision by Britain, Germany, France and Italy to defy the United States and join the AIIB, the China-led regional bank seen as a potential rival to the World Bank.'s inroads into the West - Casarini.pdf
