Your opinion Jul 11, 2010

When trying to get an opinion from your colleagues, why don't you tell us your opinion?
You should try first to answer to the following questions:

1. How changing the currency from USD to CNY would improve the quality of your relationships with your clients?
2. How many clients that would probably prefer paying in CNY rather than in USD do you have?
3. What disadvantages do you have when stating you rates in USD?
4. What advantages would you have if stating them in KNY?
5. Why can't you have your rates in both currencies?

If most of your clients are Chinese, I'd suggest switching to CNY. If most of your clients are American or European, I'd suggest using USD. No-one can tell whether the CNY will lose or gain against the USD now that the two currencies are no longer linked, and I don't think speculation about it should affect your decision.
