2005年NPR美国国家公共电台十二月-Chinese Official Foresees Boost in Curre

Steve Inskeep: China is taking steps that are designed to benefit both the domestic and global economies. A Chinese official said today the country's currency will gradually gain value. That trend will spur domestic consumption inside China itself and also help reduce global trade imbalances. International economists2 say China's currency is severely3 undervalued and recent economic reforms by Beijing have had little effect. NPR's Anthony Kuhn reports.

Anthony Kuhn: The comments came from economist1 Yu Yongding, an advisor4 to China's central bank. He was quoted in today's official Finacial News newspaper. He said that following China's exchange rate reforms in July, the Chinese yuan would rise slowly within a range set by the government. July's reforms took the yuan's exchange rate off its peg5 to the US dollar and instead pegged6 it to a basket of foreign currencies. Yu admitted that since the reform, the yuan had only risen 0.4% against the dollar. That's not much compared to the 15 to 40 percent by which foreign governments say the yuan is undervalued. The revaluation has already put a damper on Chinese textile and electronic exports, Yu Yongding noted7. But more importantly, Yu predicted that the revaluation would boost Chinese domestic demand and imports, which in turn would cut trade surpluses with countries like the US. The revaluation has clearly helped to cool speculation8 about big swings in the yuan's value. The official China Business News reported today that China's foreign currency reserves grew by 9.3 billion dollars in November, the slowest rate in 18 months. Zhong Dajun is a Beijing-based economist who runs his own think tank. He says a lot of the recent influx9 of foreign currency into China is hot money, betting the China's currency will rise in value.

Anthony Kuhn: 'Some speculated investors10 see that the yuan is now in a relatively11 stable state,' he says, 'so their appetite and enthusiasm for speculation has weakened a bit. But foreign pressure for a bigger revaluation has not eased. US politicians continued to blame America's current account deficit12 and loss of American jobs on an artificially undervalued Chinese currency.' Zhong Dajun says the finger pointing is unnecessary.

Anthony Kuhn: 'China's government doesn't need foreign governments to pressure it to adjust its exchange rate.' he says. 'Chinese economists have been telling their government for years,' he adds, 'that its mercantilist policies based on cheap exports have drained China's own resources and are unsustainable.'
