Exchange Rate in China
The Chinese yuan experienced a gradual but controlled depreciation against the US dollar from 2013 to 2022. While facing downward pressure due to trade tensions, recession abroad and economic slowdown at home, the yuan's movements were largely contained by the People's Bank of China, reflecting the government's focus on maintaining economic stability and avoiding excessive volatility in the exchange rate.
The exchange rate ended 2022 at CNY 6.90 per USD, compared to the end-2021 value of CNY 6.35 per USD. For more exchange rate information, visit our dedicated page.
