Central Bank of the Republic of China (Taiwan)

PRESS RELEASE                                      Release Date:  July 5, 2019

                      

Foreign Exchange Reserves as of the End of June 2019

The foreign exchange reserves of the Republic of China amounted to US$466.97 billion as of the end of June 2019, showing an increase of US$2.54 billion from the figure recorded at the end of the previous month.

The factors responsible for the increase in the foreign exchange reserves in June 2019 are:

1. The appreciation of the euro and other reserve currencies 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.

3. Large and sudden capital inflows caused excessive volatility. The central bank stepped in to maintain an orderly foreign exchange market.
