Nor will China ever engage in an arms race, Xi added. Xi made the remarks while delivering a keynote speech via video at the opening ceremony of the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2021. Meanwhile, the central parity rate of the Chinese currency renminbi, or the yuan, strengthened 130 pips to 6.5103 against the US dollar onTuesday (April 20), according to the China Foreign Exchange Trade System.
