China did not manipulate currency in 2010: US

"Based on the resumption of exchange rate flexibility last June and the acceleration of the pace of real bilateral appreciation over the past few months," China's behavior did not qualify under the official definition of manipulation, it said. "Treasury's view, however, is that progress thus far is insufficient and that more rapid progress is needed," it added in the report.
