Of the almost one hundred new stores which WalMart plans to open in China this year only one will be a SuperCenter. It will be called: The Great WalMart of China.

Higher yuan would also take the sheen off of Chinese competitors in their home markets (a little) and would make China more open to foreign competition. Also, price-sensitive emerging markets would come into greater play as Chinese goods would rise in price relative to other goods.

higher yuan would impact BB vendors that are in the commodified low-end, but not so much those in the higher end.
