Sina News

- The economic inequality in China continues to worsen according to a China Family Panel Studies report released recently. The top 1% of the Chinese population now owns approximately 1/3rd of the total wealth in China. The poorest 25% of the population, however, only has 1% of China’s wealth. Chinese income Gini ratio has risen from 0.3 in the 1980’s to 0.49 in 2012, far above the 0.4 threshold level. Gini ratio is the most commonly measure of inequality, ranging from 0 (perfect equality) to 1 (perfect inequality). This disparity is also seen in the widening in the education and health care resources available to the wealthy and the poor.

- Both Shanghai and Shenzhen stock exchanges said they’re keeping a close eye with tight controls on big shareholders reducing their holdings. Since the revised policy on big shareholders was introduced on Jan 7, only three big shareholders have reduced their stakes. The total amount of the three transactions is not significant and thus has had little-to-no impact to the secondary market.

SAFE: Foreign Exchange Regulator

Currently, Chinese individuals over 18- years old are allowed to purchase $50,000 US dollars or an equal amount of another currency each year without specifying any specific reasons. SAFE clarified that there is no restriction on the purchase of, nor is there a reduction in the amounts previously specified, despite the fact that China faces an outsized drop in the foreign currency reserves.
