Andy Xie Recommends China Diversify Out Of Treasuries
The Chinese foreign reserve accumulation is really about the exchange rate peg. As long as the Yuan’s dollar peg remains near present levels, the current account imbalance will result in an accumulation of dollar reserves.

Longer-term, he says the peg must go.
