The realization on the construction of Chinese Monetary Union in the Four Regions is a crucial step to realize the strategy of the RMB internationalization, and it will make great progress in the promotion of China’s economy. The similarity in economic structure and the high dependence on trade make it feasible to construct a Chinese Monetary Union among the Four Regions, however, challenges from legal, political and economic problems still exist.
