Singapore banks have seen a sharp increase in the amount of yuan deposits over the past nine months, after moves were made to strengthen the Republic's position as a yuan offshore centre.

Banks in Singapore had 220 billion yuan ($35.49 billion) in deposits at the end of March, up sharply from 138 billion yuan in June last year, data from the Monetary Authority of Singapore showed.
