The measures taken by Chinese government has prevented the stock market from decline in precipice way and the occurrence of systematic risk.

According to the statement, since the August correction in stock market, the investors leverage in stock market has been going down significantly and the real economy has not been impacted.

The reform of the middle price quotation of yuan exchange rate mechanism on August 11 is an important step to the marketing reform of renminbi rate.

Renminbi was devalued for a certain degree after the reform, but the renminbi was overvalued for reasons like the value-up of US dollar, the generally value depreciate of currency in emerging market economies.
