Yuan on agenda as China and US meet for economic talks


In Beijing, the world's two biggest economies, the US and China, are holding their annual economic dialogue.

It meet has been overshadowed by the treatment of blind activist Chen Guangcheng and other security issues.

Nevertheless, economic topics are on the agenda, with the US again raising the issue of the yuan's valuation.

Pu Yonghao, regional chief investment officer at UBS Wealth Management in Hong Kong, told the BBC's Sharanjit Leyl, that the revaluation was already happening.
