The People’s Bank of China Announcement on 4/14/12

Effective from April 16, 2012 onwards, the floating band of RMB’s trading prices against the US dollar in the inter-bank spot foreign exchange market is enlarged from 0.5 percent to 1 percent, i.e., on each business day, the trading prices of the RMB against the US dollar in the inter-bank spot foreign exchange market will fluctuate within a band of ±1 percent around the central parity released on the same day by the China Foreign Exchange Trade System. The spread between the RMB/USD selling and buying prices offered by the foreign exchange-designated banks to their customers shall not exceed 2 percent of the central parity, instead of 1 percent, while other provisions in the Circular of the PBC on Relevant Issues Managing the Trading Prices in the Inter-bank Foreign Exchange Market and Quoted Exchange Rates of Exchange-Designated Banks(PBC Document No.[2010]325) remain valid.


For most of its early history, CNY was pegged to the U.S. dollar at 2.46 yuan per USD. During the 1970s, it was appreciated until it reached 1.50 yuan per USD in 1980. When China’s economy gradually opened in the 1980s, CNY was devalued in order to improve the competitiveness of Chinese exports. Thus, the official USD/CNY exchange rate declined from 1.50 yuan in 1980 to 8.62 yuan by 1994 (lowest record).
