The economy of China, witnessed marvelous growth since mid 1990s in its exports. Helped by growth in exports, China maintained huge positive trade balance with most of its major trade partners and vast forex reserves. China was accused, by its trade partners, of keeping its currency undervalued to maintain cost competitiveness for its products in global markets and thus increasing its exports.

By mid-2010, pressure mounted from all quarters on China to revalue its currency so that the real value of the yuan vis--vis other currencies would be depicted. Though China remained silent on the issue, economic observers opined that it would have to yield to the pressure sooner or later. They also said that revaluing the currency might not yield results in the short term.
