Overview

The recent rapid growth of the offshore renminbi market presents a puzzle for analysts of China's development strategy. By allowing renminbi to flow offshore uncontrolled before loosening government controls over internal financial markets, Chinese officials are straying from the normal sequence of steps toward currency internationalization.
