After China’s Hubris, It’s Trump’s Turn

That triumphant sense of destiny abruptly ended decades of foreign-policy caution. Chinese dredgers ripped up South China Sea reefs to build militarized islands. Paramilitary fleets swarmed around islets disputed with Japan in the East China Sea. And China served notice that it not only intended to contest the U.S.-led regional security order, but reshape the global financial architecture too. Nothing symbolized that ambition more than Beijing’s successful effort to convince the IMF to ordain the yuan a global reserve currency.


Could someone please paraphrase the bold part for me?

    China had an ambition to reshape the global financial architecture. The act that best symbolized that ambition was the fact that they convinced the IMF to make the yuan a global reserve currency.
