The denomination of China’s currency is the renminbi ( literally translated as “Peoples’ currency”). The major unit of the renminbi is the yuan. Many Americans believe that the yuan should strengthen further against our dollar. They cite as evidence the fact that the value of China exports to this country far exceeds that of our exports to China.

Also cited is that in dollar terms, the wages of Chinese workers are extremely low.
