ncial environment in the long term, Chen Yuan, a former deputy governor of the central bank and former vice-ch

微信群红包乌托邦品茶微信”Previously, we identified the foreign exchange reserves as an important milestone for ec

According to Chen, faced with new challenges, including foreign exchange rate issues raised by the United States rec微信群红包乌托邦
ently, the priority is to keep these reserves safe, and strengthen the renminbi’s position globally.
Chen sees potential in foreign exchange rate risks, as the majority of China-reserved foreign assets are in US dollars.
Late last month, the State Administration of Foreign Exchange, or SAFE, C
hina’s forex regulator, said the country’s foreign exchange reserves held in US dollars
微信群红包乌托邦accounted for 58 percent of the total by the end of 2014, down from 79 percent in 1995.

Relaxed price fluctuation limits have enabled the STAR Market stocks to be more timely priced, leading to higher p

微信群红包夜生活女神会所Securities regulators lifted price fluctuation limits for STAR stocks in their first five trading days, and thereafter a 20 pe

Analysts expect trading on the STAR Market to become more rational in the medium term, with valuation levels to bet微信群红包夜生活

valuations, while weaker ones may see a marked divergence in stock price performance.

Borrowing costs will get lower for companies in China starting Tuesday through a
key interest rate reform brought out by the People’s Bank of China, the central bank, to maintain ec微信群红包419
onomic momentum amid the continuing trade friction with the United States.
微信群红包419女神会所Analysts say the interest rate reform will lower financing costs for small a
nd private companies and encourage investment in the manufacturing sector.
The PBOC unveiled the policy over the weekend, saying it would introduce a new reference rate, the loan prime rate－the pr微信群红包419
ice of loans banks offer their best clients－for setting the prices of business and household loans. The earlier re
微信群红包419ference rate, the one-year benchmark lending rate, will be replaced in the future.
The announcement is seen as China’s most significant market-based interest rate reform for over a decade, experts said.微信群红包419女神会所
The PBOC said in a statement that, starting Tuesday, 18 qualified commer
cial banks, including State-owned banks, city and rural commercial banks and foreign banks, will report their lend
微信群红包419ing reference rate every month. Analysts expect the first loan prime rate will be much lower than the current 4.35 per
cent one-year benchmark lending rate, which has been unchanged since August 2015.
The statement said commercial banks will be allo微信群红包419
wed to float the lending rates up by certain percentage points above the medium-ter
微信群红包419女神会所m lending facility rate of the central bank. The medium-term lending rate is the cost that commercial banks sho
uld pay for borrowing from the central bank, and it was set at 3.3 percent on Thursday.
Sheng Songcheng, a central bank adviser and former head of the PBOC’s
statistics department, said the reform will help keep lending rates lower.
Moreover, the changes will enable the PBOC to effectively influence Chin微信群红包419女神会所
a’s entire interest rate system by selling or buying financial instruments on the open
market, much like how Western central banks implement monetary policy, Sheng said.
