LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/13 -- According to the UK Treasury, banks across the world are taking steps to allow the Chinese Yuan to be traded across offshore markets as the ruling party took proactive steps to relax its grip on the currency's value, reports currency exchange experts, Currencies Direct.
Following last year's congressional meet within the Chinese Ruling party, the government outlined plans to expand the use of the Yuan across foreign exchange markets, thereby allowing more overseas investors to access local Chinese capital markets. The move comes as export led growth has slowed economic growth, with Mongolia now displacing China as the world's fastest growing economy.
According to the Treasury website, the Yuan climbed 0.005 percent to 6.2256 in Shanghai following news that China's central bank had raised the currency's reference rate - the Yuan's estimated value. The rise was in fact response to the publication of strong growth figures, which showed that China's economy was slowly rebounding.
According to Bloomberg, a financial media corporation, the Yuan continued its incremental rise on foreign exchange markets, growing for the fifth successive month to 2.25 percent.
