Taiwan central bank governor Yang Chin-long said on Thursday (March 11) that the United States may label the island a currency manipulator, judging by Washington’s three main criteria for making such a decision, which Taiwan has already reached.

Yang, answering a lawmaker's questions in parliament, added that if this happens it would not be too serious and that there would be no immediate disadvantage for Taiwan.
