Operations of the Bank

Foreign Exchange Management

The Bank follows the established managed float regime for its foreign exchange management, and capital can, in principle, flow freely in and out of Taiwan. Currently, foreign currency capital not involving NT dollar conversion can flow freely; neither is there any restriction on financial flows involving NT dollar conversion for goods and service trade, as well as direct and securities investments approved by the competent authorities. However, regulation exists for short-term remittances.
The NT dollar exchange rate is in principle determined by market forces. Nevertheless, when seasonal or irregular factors (such as massive inflows or outflows of short-term capital) lead to excess volatility and disorderly movements in the NT dollar exchange rate with adverse implications for economic and financial stability, the Bank will step in to maintain an orderly market.
