Attempting to increase the internationalization of the won and the yuan, Seoul and Beijing form an agreement which will allow more trade between the two countries to be settled in local currency. Presumably most accounts are now settled by purchasing dollars, which then must be exchanged into either the won or yuan. Trade between the two was $220B in 2011.
