MEXICO CITY, Sept 29 (Reuters) - The Chinese Yuan is "quite a way" from becoming a global reserve currency despite its inclusion in the International Monetary Fund's currency basket, and China needs further reform to reach that goal, U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said on Thursday.

Speaking in Mexico City, Lew added that the widespread use of the U.S. dollar as a global reserve currency was a singular feature of the U.S. economy.
