Transcript of The Revaluation of the Chinese Yuan

The revaluation of the Chinese Yuan 2004-2005. Case summary Core issues Answer to case questions Chinese Yuan exchange rate to USD Case update Before 2005 July, 2005 August, 2012 8.28 Yuan / 1 USD 2%
revaluation 1. Many Chinese critics had urged China to revaluate the yuan by 20% or more. What would the Chinese yuan´s value be in the U.S. dollars if it had indeed been devalued by 20%? 2. Do you believe that the revaluation of the Chinese yuan was politically or economically motivated? We believe that it was motivated by both reasons.


• First of all it was politically motivated by the U.S and Europe due to the fact that the value of the Yuan was very low and that gave an unfair advantaged in the international trade.

• It was also politically motivated because the U.S. was preparing to impose a 27.5 % tariff on imports from China.

• The Yuan had also been pegged to the U.S Dollar for over 10 years.

• China did it to have a calmer relationship with Washington


• The revaluation did not affect their prices too much.

• America´s trade deficit of $700 billion was at the time 9 times China´s surplus so It wouldn´t change that much the global imbalances.

• Transition from central planning to free market economy 3. If the Chinese yuan were to change by the maximum allowed per day, 0.3% against the U.S. dollar, consistently over a 30 or 60 day period, what extreme values might it reach? 8.11 Yuan / 1 USD 6.35 Yuan / 1 USD 4. Chinese multinationals would now be facing the same exchange rate related risks borne by U.S., Japanese, and European multinational. What impact do you believe the rising risk will have on the strategy and operations of Chinese companies in the near future? We think it will have a huge impact because the way they do business will change completely, they will have:

• Currency risks

• Transactions exposure

• Operations exposure

• Uncertainty

• Lose their profit margins against their production costs

• Be more productive, competitive and efficient References •If it was revalued at 30 days it would be worth $7.41 and at 60 days $6.78 • If it was devalued at 30 days it would be worth $8.87 and at 60 days $9.71 Case update Chinese Yuan exchange rate to USD
