Yi Gang, governor of the People's Bank of China, the country's central bank, wrote in an article recently published in the periodical Economic Research Journal that the elasticity of the RMB exchange rate has increased significantly over the past few years.
As China has placed more emphasis on the autonomy of interest rate policies amid the drastic interest rate changes among major world economies in recent years, the economic fundamentals of China are stabilized, which has formed support to a stable and resilient foreign exchange market, wrote Yi.
