  • The change in foreign exchange gains or losses was mainly due to an appreciation of RMB against USD in 2Q15. Foreign monetary assets mainly consist of cash and cash equivalent and accounts receivables in RMB. And foreign monetary liabilities mainly consist of loans, accounts payables and other payables in RMB. The Group is in net foreign monetary asset position.
