Foreign Exchange Reserves as at the End of
July 2009

The foreign exchange reserves of the Republic of China amounted to US$321.09 billion at the end of July 2009, showing an increase of US$3.53 billion from the figure recorded at the end of the previous month.

The main factors responsible for the increase in foreign exchange reserves in July 2009 are:
1. Returns from foreign exchange reserves management.
2. The EUR, JPY and other major currencies appreciated against the US dollar. Foreign exchange reserves denominated in these currencies were worth more in terms of the base currency, the US dollar.
