SHANGHAI, June 20 (Reuters) - China's long-planned international payment system for cross-border yuan settlement will "soon" be based in Shanghai, central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan said on Tuesday without providing further details.

The China International Payments System, or CIPS, would replace a patchwork of networks and allow hassle-free yuan payments.
