In an interview Tuesday with the Wall Street Journal, President Xi said China has been working to improve its market-based Yuan exchange rate system and recent devaluations of the Yuan were one of the measures. He said that given the complexities in the current international economic scene and financial market and the apparent divergence in market makers’ expectations of the future trend of the Yuan exchange rate, there has been a long-standing gap between the central parity and market exchange rate of the Yuan, adding that there is no basis for sustained depreciation of the Yuan.
