China “stress-testing” the impact of RMB revaluation

leave a comment »

A leading financial newspaper in China is reporting that stress-testing the labor-intensive exporters to access the impact of RMB revaluation. The effort is supposed to be conducted via several ministries and is already underway.

The low-end manufacturers like textile exporters already suffered from razor-thin profit margin of 3-5%. It’s estimated that every 1% rise in RMB will wipe out a corresponding percentage point of margin for these manufacturers.
