China Will Not Use Currency Depreciation to Boost Exports: Central Bank

China is opposed to currency depreciation to boost the country’s exports, central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan said on Friday, even as latest data showed January exports fell for the seventh straight month.

Zhou, speaking at a central bank press conference on the sidelines of a G20 meeting of central bank governors and finance ministers, also said China will prevent bubbles in its financial markets.
