As Asian Currencies Lose Value, Can Governments Avoid a Crisis

Many of Asia's currencies are losing value against the United States dollar this year.

But experts say governments are managing the losses better than they did in the past.

The currencies of China, India, Indonesia and Myanmar all have lost value since January of 2018. The Indian rupee was at a record low against the U.S. dollar in June. And the Chinese yuan lost 3.2 percent in the first half of the year.

Next week, China will face additional U.S. tariffs on $16 billion-worth of Chinese products.
