Geithner Says China Has Done “Very Little” on Yuan: Report

ABC News reports on an interview in the Wall Street Journal with U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner in which he comments on China’s currency revaluation:

In an interview conducted on Friday, Geithner was asked if he was satisfied with China’s progress on the yuan. He replied: “Of course not.”

“China took the very important step in June of signaling that they’re going to let the exchange rate start to reflect market forces. But they’ve done very, very little, they’ve let it move very, very little in the interim. It’s very important to us, and I think it’s important to China, I think they recognize this, that you need to let it move up over a sustained period of time.”

Geithner is due to testify before the House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee on Thursday to present the Obama administration’s latest view of what the United States should do to press China to reform its exchange rate practices.

In the transcript of his comments posted online by the Wall Street Journal, he did not address that issue.
