Hub Centres will be set up in Hong Kong, Singapore and Basel, Switzerland, in the initial phase.

Norman Chan, HKMA’s chief executive, said in a statement, “I hope the Centre under the management of the BIS will foster collaboration between central banks and scale up application of innovative technologies to a global level.”
