China’s Zhu Says G-20 Statement on Currencies Is ‘Balanced’

October 15, 2011

Oct. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Chinese deputy finance minister Zhu Guangyao said the Group of 20’s statement on currencies is “balanced.”

The G-20 communique issued after a meeting of finance ministers and central bankers in Paris today describes the currency issue in a “very comprehensive and balanced way,” Zhu said in an interview. The discussions were “important preparation” for a G-20 leaders’ summit on Nov. 3-4, he said.

The G-20 finance chiefs left their comments on currencies broadly unchanged in today’s statement, repeating their support for “market-determined exchange rates.”

“We reiterate that excess volatility and disorderly movements in exchange rates have adverse implications for economic and financial stability,” they said.
