U.S.'s Geithner says China yuan reforms promising
BEIJING (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told Chinese President Hu Jintao on Friday that China's moves toward a more market-oriented exchange rate system were "very promising".
"We consider the broad direction of the economic reforms that you have laid out - to move to a more market oriented exchange rate system, to expand consumption and domestic demand, to open up the Chinese economy further to foreign competition, to create a more modern financial sector - we think these are very promising reforms," Geithner said in the Great Hall of the People.
