New measures ease foreign companies’ market access, help inspire greater investor confidence

上海会所Despite the Sino-US trade dispute, China has attracted a great deal of f

The remarks came after the Ministry of Commerce said on Tuesday that FDI in the Chi上海会所品茶微信

ponding positively to the government’s opening-up and liberalizing measures.

Zhang Xiaohui, a senior researcher for the CF40 and a former assistant governor of the Chinese central bank, said, “The IMF concl上海龙凤1314

usion is objective and reflects that the yuan was assessed to be broadly in line with medium-term fundamentals.”

上海龙凤1314品茶微信Besides refraining from competitively depreciating its own currency, China has also b

een committed to promoting international currency policy coordination, said Zhu, the bank official.

President Xi Jinping announced at the Second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing in April tha上海龙凤1314

t China will more effectively engage in international macro-economic policy coordination, including more improve

ments to the exchange rate regime, to ensure that the market plays a decisive role in resource allocation.

According to the IMF news release on Friday, its executive directors agreed that grea

上海龙凤1314品茶微信ter exchange rate flexibility and deeper and better-functioning foreign exchange

markets would help China’s financial system be more capable of dealing with capital flow volatility.

Chen Yuan, chairman of the CF40 Executive Council and former上海龙凤1314

vice-chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, ca

utioned that China needs to prepare for long-term disputes, including in the field of finance.

Chen suggested increasing yuan-denominated settlements in global comm上海龙凤1314品茶微信

Zhou Xiaochuan, chairman of the China Institute of Finance and a former c

上海龙凤1314entral bank governor, said at the CF40 forum over the weekend that China may have to take

countermeasures in the face of any tariff or nontariff barriers imposed against the country.

It was not manipulation but market forces that pushed the recent depreciation of the yuan against the gree上海龙凤1314品茶微信

nback, said Phil Levy, chief economist at Flexport, a San Francisco-based logistics company.

“It is difficult to argue that a failure to intervene against those market forces constitutes currency manipulation,” he said.

The IMF is the world’s 上海后花园oritative institution

 to assess exchange rates, not the US Treasury Department,” said Z

hu Jun, director of the International Department of the People’s Bank of China, the central ba上海后花园

nk, at the China Finance 40 Forum on Saturday. The CF40 is a nongovernmental, nonprofit think tank.

上海后花园女神会所The IMF has long been committed to promoting international financial stability

and currency cooperation, redressing the imbalances of international payments, Zhu said.

Citing previous market performance, Zhu said the yuan has depreciated against the dollar fo上海后花园

llowing Washington’s renewed threat of tariff hikes on Chinese goods. Similarly, the yuan fluctuations earlier this m

onth were a natural market reaction, resulting from trade tensions that have been escalated by the US, she said.

上海后花园The yuan weakened to above 7 per dollar for the first time in more than a decade last week,

after Washington’s threat to slap 10 percent tariffs on an additional $300 billion of Chinese goods starting Sept 1.上海后花园女神会所

Shortly after the yuan fell beyond the psychological threshold, the US Treasury Departme

nt declared that China was manipulating its currency to achieve unfair trade advantage.上海后花园

Zhu said that despite the trade tensions over the past year and a hal

f, China has never used exchange rates to respond to external disruptions.

The IMF report, referring to last year’s performance of the yuan, also said that even上海后花园女神会所

though the Chinese currency depreciated against the dollar fairly rapidly

from mid-June to early August, it was “broadly stable” against a basket of benchmark currencies.上海后花园

Moreover, the Chinese monetary authorities took measures, including reintroducing a countercyclical adjus

tment factor, to resist depreciation pressure during that period, according to the report, which is based on the IMF’s latest

上海后花园女神会所Article IV consultation with China, a review of the Chinese economy that concluded on July 31.

The IMF report released last week suggests that the US labeling simply doesn’t hold water, said Yu Yongding, a se

nior economist at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and a consultant for the CF40 forum.上海后花园女神会所

The IMF report provides evidence that, rather than artificially depreci

ating the yuan for trade advantage, as the US administration alleged, China has shown a

pattern of commitment to keeping the yuan generally in equilibrium at an adaptive

level, said Liu Chunsheng, an associate professor at Central University of Finance and Economics in Beijing.

An amicable relationship 上海千花坊hina and Japan ser

d, as Beijing and Tokyo resumed strategic talks after a seven-year hiatus. 上海千花坊

On Saturday, a strategic dialogue between

Le Yucheng, China’s vice-minister of foreign affairs, and his Japanese

 上海千花坊女神会所counterpart, Takeo Akiba, was held at the Karuizawa mountain resort in Japan’s Nagano prefecture.

They had what was described as candid exchanges about bilateral and regional issues and said they would push

forward the consensus reached between President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinz 上海千花坊

“Both China and Japan advocated building a relationship that meets the requirements of the new era,” it said.

Official exchanges and communication mechanisms, includ 上海千花坊

 上海千花坊女神会所Lu said the strategic dialogue mechanism plays a vital role for the two neighbors, especially as they are both fa

“The dialogue not only focuses on improving bilateral ties but also touches on

some of the important regional and international issues of common interest,” Lu said, 上海千花坊女神会所

adding that boosting mutual understanding and cooperation between China and Japan, the w

orld’s second-and third-largest economies, helps promote regional stability and prosperity. 上海千花坊

IMF report proves 上海419t manipulating currency

The latest report by International Monetary Fund (IMF) conclude

上海419d that the exchange rate of the Chinese yuan was “broadly in line with medium-term f

undamentals”, and the Chinese monetary authority barely intervened in the foreign exchange market.上海419

The report, released late Friday in Washington, was a blow to the lab

eling of China as “a currency manipulator” by the US administration, experts said.

The value of the Chinese currency and the country’s external position i

上海419品茶微信n 2018 were “broadly in line with the level consistent with medium-term fun

damentals and desirable policies,” the report said, citing that China’s current account surplus fell by around 1 pe

rcentage point to 0.4 percent of GDP in 2018 and is projected to remain contained at 0.5 percent of GDP in 2019.

Estimates showed that the People’s Bank of China, the country’s central ban上海419

k, has had “little FX intervention”, said the report, which is based on IMF’s latest Ar

ticle IV consultation with China, a review of the Chinese economy that concluded on July 31.

上海419品茶微信The IMF’s conclusion came in just four days after the US Treasury officially la

beled China as a “currency manipulator” on Monday. The Chinese yuan

weakened to beyond 7 per dollar for the first time in more than a decade earlier this week.上海419
