The lower exchange rate is just a byproduct, not a goal.Chinas exports have indeed witnessed a slump this year, but this is largely a reflection of sluggish external demand. Fortunately, China has sufficient policy ammunition to boost domestic demand to offset external headwinds.According to the HSBC, both monetary and fiscal policies are becoming more accommodative and better coordinated, as evidenced by the reports that policy banks will issue more than 1 trillion yuan in financial bonds to support infrastructure investment.The HSBC forecast that “the combination of monetary and fiscal policy support should help ensure that the economy is on a path of cyclical recovery and achieve the growth target of around 7 percent.”Thirdly, a weakening of the currency has resulted from relatively slow real economic growth, and a stable exchange rate needs a steady economy.As the US economy has gained fresh recovery momentum, it is natural that the US dollar has appreciated.Meanwhile, China, which is undergoing a “new normal” in its economy that demands shifting its development model to a more balanced and sustainable one, still needs time to stabilize. Thus, it comes as no surprise that the yuan exchange rate will not stabilize until the economy itself is stable.8.03KRelated StoriesIMF welcomes Chinas move to improve forex formation systemSpectacular increase in new yuan loansExchange rate fluctuation is normal, says central bankUS Treasury to continue to monitor Chinas FX reformPBOC signals important change in managing the exchange ratePhoto2015 China International Fair for Investment and Trade kicks off in XiamenLives of freelancersSummer Davos Forum to be held from Sept 9 to 11Top 10 most profitable listed Chinese carmakers in H1Learn to behave like a real nobleChengdu Motor show kicks offChina Economy By NumbersChina Economy by Numbers – Dec China Economy by Numbers – Nov NewsmakerTop executive of Infor has head in the cloud Zwilling stays at cutting edge of the kitchenware industryMost ViewedTodays Top News2015 China International Fair for Investment and Trade kicks off in XiamenChinas commodity imports robust in Jan-Aug periodChina stocks rebound 2.92%2015 China box office already past 2014 totalChina foreign trade decline widens in AugustInterview: JP Morgans senior executive bullish on ChinaInnovation, development the focus for NZ mayorsLives of freelancersHot TopicsFiat SpA Peugeot SA Taxi app Internet finance Housing price Disneyland 12306.cn WeChatEditors PicksSino-US trade in numbers Worlds top 10 best airports in 2015 Top 10 wealthiest Chinese in the world in 2015 Top 8 novel career choices in China SpecialsSummer Davos 2015Zhanjiang on Maritime Silk RoadCEO roundtable: new normal & challenges…| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer | Expat Employment |Copyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
