Liu continued by saying that the existing exchange regime is currently suitable for China and for he expects it to be for "a good period of time in the future."
The announcement came after officials suggested that the currency could be allowed to appreciate, and authorities should eventually let up on controlling it. The bank had stopped regular intervention and will let the market play a more significant role in deciding the exchange rate.
