Yuan's Depreciation Could Affect Indonesian Exports: CBank Governor


DECEMBER 19, 2016

Jakarta. Indonesia central bank governor Agus Martowardojo said on Monday that depreciation of Chinese yuan could negatively affect Indonesia’s export competitiveness.

The central bank noted that the yuan has depreciated by 6.3 percent against the U.S. dollar this year, while the rupiah has appreciated by about 3 percent.

“If we’re not careful, we can have a difficult competitive situation against China, because China continues to have its currency depreciated,” Martowardojo said.
