The Chief Executive
All Authorized Institutions

Dear Sir/Madam,

Reporting of Renminbi Business Data

I refer to my letter of 6 July 2009 regarding expansion in the scope of RMB business in Hong Kong. To cope with the latest changes, the HKMA is consulting the industry for revising the Return of Renminbi Business Activities (MA(BS)16). It is the intention of the HKMA to require all authorized institutions (AIs) (instead of only licensed banks as currently required) to submit the revised Return starting from the position of August 2009. We will inform you when the revision is completed.

As a temporary arrangement all AIs should use a supplementary spreadsheet template to file the relevant additional data for the position of July 2009 to the HKMA before the revised Return is available. Meanwhile, all licensed banks should continue to submit the existing Return until further notice to be given by the HKMA.

Same as the existing Return, the supplementary spreadsheet template should be reported via the STET system within 21 days from the position date. The submission of the position of July 2009 will fall due on 21 August. The template and the completion instructions are attached, and a soft copy will soon be delivered to each AI via the STET system. Please note that this temporary arrangement will cease as soon as the revised Return is adopted.

Should you have any question on this subject, please approach Mr Thomas Wong (tel. no. 2878-1553), Ms Denise Tai (tel. no. 2878-1589) or your usual supervisory contacts at the HKMA.

Yours faithfully,

Nelson Man
Executive Director
(Banking Supervision)
