China's foreign exchange reserves, which reached $954.5 billion at the end of July, will top $1 trillion this month, a foreign exchange official said in remarks published on Friday.
Chen Bingcai, an official at the State Administration of Foreign Exchange, wrote in the China Economic Times that the country needed a stronger yuan to help correct imbalances in its international payments.
Chen said China had no reason to fear the impact of a stronger exchange rate on trade or jobs.
Moreover, Chinese companies could live with a rise of another 3 per cent at least in the yuan, he said.
