     The People's Bank of China started setting a daily central parity rate on
Jan. 4, 2007.
     On July 21, 2005, China freed the yuan from its longstanding peg to the
dollar in favor of a managed float with reference to a basket of currencies.
     Starting March 17, 2014, the yuan was allowed to move 2% on either side of
the daily fixing against the dollar.
