PRESS RELEASE Release Date: May 5, 2011

Foreign Exchange Reserves as at the End of
April 2011

The foreign exchange reserves of the Republic of China amounted to US$399.54 billion at the end of April 2011, showing an increase of US$6.92 billion from the figure recorded at the end of the previous month.

The main factors responsible for the increase in foreign exchange reserves in April 2011 are:
1. The EUR 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.
2. Returns from foreign exchange reserves management.
