At the end of November 2018, China's foreign exchange reserve balance was 306.17 billion US dollars, up 8.6 billion US dollars from the end of October.
In addition, in recent years, the international environment is complex and external pressures persist, but our foreign exchange market generally presents a two-way fluctuation, basically stable pattern, and there is no trend change. On the one hand, it reflects the fundamental role of the smooth operation of China's economy. On the other hand, it also shows that the participants in the foreign exchange market are more rational, and their ability to adapt to changes in the external environment is constantly improving.
