CHINA

(yuan = 10 jiao = 100 fen)

97-CNY

Text Box: 	The ‘renminbi’ or ‘ren min bi’ is the official currency of People’s Republic of China.
	One yuan is divided into 10 jiao (角), and one jiao is divided into 10 fen (分). So 3.45 yuan would be spoken of as "3 yuan 4 jiao 5 fen", as opposed to "3 yuan 45 fen". 
	The largest denomination of the renminbi is the 100-yuan note. The smallest is the 1-fen coin or note. One of the more interesting things to note is that all denominations are available as banknotes. The fen notes are now rather insignificant, and the design has not changed since 1953.
Text Box: Import / Export restrictions:
	Foreign currency:

 Out: up to amount imported and declared
	Local currency:
  In: up to 6 000 yuan (750 USD)
