- China’s central bank announced that the required mortgage down payment in the cities without purchase restrictions will be reduced to 20 percent from 25 percent for the first-home buyers. The new policy aims to support the property market and reduce the stockpile of unsold homes. Last December, the Chinese government has released five key tasks to be done in 2016. One of them is to reduce the rising home inventory. The minimum down payment for the second-home purchases is also reduced, cut to 30 percent from 40 percent. Besides helps to the property market, the new policy will also encourage borrowings from banks, which are now having shrinking business in the slowing economy.

- For Chinese iron and steel industry, winter is not over yet. According to a report released by China Iron & Steel Association, the industry’s CSPI Index in December fell by 32.16% from a month earlier. The total profit of the industry in 2015 dropped to a negative reading of 64.53 billion yuan. Over 50% of member companies reported losses in 2015. One of the top five tasks in 2016 for China is to deal with the overcapacity issue. The iron and steel industry report shows that the country still has a long way to go.
