The Financial Services Development Council (FSDC) wants Hong Kong to get ready for digital currencies, naming China specifically and citing "the likely issuance of digital RMB". It was mentioned in a paper called “Hong Kong – Building Trust Using Distributed Ledger Technology”.

If true, this poses serious challenges to China.

Being a special adminstrative region, Hong Kong has enjoyed a certain flavor of autonomy since the handover from the UK. If this is a "trial balloon" for seeing how it works in a smaller market (compared to the rest of China), before it being completely adopted by China nationwide, then it is a big deal.

But like all things in bitcoinland, we must first wait to see the proof before speculating about the implications.
