"A country's exchange rate policy and its exchange rates should depend on its national economy and economic situation," Wen said while meeting the press after the annual parliament session.

Wen said China will further improve the yuan exchange rate formation mechanism and keep the yuan exchange rates basically stable at a reasonable and balanced level.

"We support free trade, which will keep the economy going and bring harmony and peace to people," he said.
