PBOC News: China’s Central Bank

China’s Central Bank said that some commercial banks no longer meet the criterial for preferential reserve requirement ratios (RRR); thus the Central Bank will raise RRR on those banks beginning on February 25, 2016. In the statement, the Central Bank also explained that the RRR adjustment is based on banks’ performance rather than to restrict new yuan loans issuance, said by some media. The January new yuan loans reading released this week came out at 2.51 trillion yuan, a record high for January.

Sina News: China’s most important online media source, similar to CNN in the US. They also own a Chinese version of Twitter, called Weibo, with around 200 million active usersmonthly.

- PBOC’s Governor Zhou Xiaochuan and Deputy Governor Yi Gang both gave speeches at the Top 50 Economists Forum regarding reforms and policies. Governor Zhou said a main target of China’s supply-side structural reforms is to eliminate price distortions. He also commented on global monetary policies: Since the 2008 financial crisis, a lot of countries have been in short supply of fiscal tools due to high debt ratios and thus they heavily rely on monetary policy. He didn’t mention the names of those countries specifically. Mr. Yi said that China’s monetary policy should be moderate and flexible. It should prevent liquidity shortage but at the same time, it should not be too loose. Otherwise, it will cause asset price bubbles and add downward pressure on the Yuan.

- Chinese government introduced additional fiscal policy to support the property market. Both the contract tax and business tax will be cut nation-wide except in four cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. The new policy will enter effect on February 22, 2016. Chinese real estate sector has showed uneven development. In the large cities such as the four cities mentioned above, land sales has hit record high in 2015; however in small and less developed cities, there are a huge amount of unsold homes. China has set reducing housing inventory as one of the top five targets in 2016. The government has introduced a series of policies to stimulus the property market, including revising real estate tax and easing lending standards.
