But an International Monetary Fund official said Friday that allowing the currency to adjust freely to economic factors is one of its recommendations to Beijing.

James Daniel, director of the IMF's China department, said that an assessment of China's economic policies found the yuan exchange rate in 2018 to be 'not significantly over-valued or under-valued'.
