Digital Diplomacy: Russia and China Explore Synchronisation of CBDCs for Cross-Border Transactions

A notable recent change, which could potentially alter the global financial landscape, has been suggested by a respected Russian lawmaker. He has proposed the concept that the Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) of Russia and China could be synchronised to enable international payments between the two nations. This idea was presented by Anatoly Aksakov, a delegate of the State Duma from the Kanash region in Chuvashia and the leader of the State Duma Committee on Financial Markets, at a conference centred on CBDCs.

Aksakov expressed optimism about the potential of international CBDCs in foreign economic activity, suggesting that the digital ruble could be used for international payments. He further hinted at the possibility of system compatibility between the Chinese CBDC system and Russia’s own, to facilitate conversions between the two digital currencies. This, he believes, could be used in the economic turnover of both countries.

The lawmaker also emphasised the need for a phased introduction of the new currency to the country, a strategy that China has successfully implemented with its digital yuan. Instead of setting a national rollout date, China has been expanding its CBDC pilot zone for the digital yuan, a model that Russia seems to be considering.

Denis Polyakov, the Deputy Director of the Department of the Russian Central Bank’s National Payment System, claimed that the digital ruble would provide domestic businesses with the opportunity to reduce costs, as the commission for payments would be only about 0.3%. He also added that ordinary citizens would be able to use the CBDC to make quick transfers without commission.

This development comes in the wake of a visit by Russia’s Prosecutor-General to Beijing, where he suggested that the two nations should cooperate on the matter of CBDC regulation. While Beijing has not publicly reciprocated this sentiment, it is testing the e-CNY’s cross-border capabilities as China-Russia relations continue to improve.

Aksakov, who is also the chief architect of Russia’s crypto legislation, has faced challenges in passing crypto laws due to a stalemate between the crypto-skeptic Central Bank Governor Elvira Nabiullina and pro-industry government ministries. Nabiullina, one of President Vladimir Putin’s closest allies, has previously served as Putin’s economic adviser and Russia’s Minister of Economic Development. She has advocated for a China-style crypto ban and the expedited launch of a digital ruble.

Analysts predict that the digital ruble could be fully rolled out by 2025, but Nabiullina is hoping to begin a “real-world” CBDC pilot by early August at the latest. This action could potentially signal a considerable transformation in the worldwide economic scene, as two of the globe’s most substantial economies delve into the possibilities of digital currencies for cross-border financial exchanges.

To sum up, the prospective harmonisation of the CBDCs of Russia and China could not only bolster the economic relationship between the two countries but also usher in a novel phase of digital currency application in global commerce. Nevertheless, the triumph of this initiative will hinge on the nations’ capacity to surmount regulatory obstacles and guarantee the safety and steadiness of their digital currencies.
