    China needs better policy coordination to spur lending-PBOC adviser

    China should better coordinate its economic policies and regulations to boost lending to small firms, a central bank adviser said in remarks published on Tuesday, as the government seeks to prop up growth amid rising trade tensions. "The main focus will be on strengthening the overall coordination of policies," Ma Jun, a policy adviser to the People's Bank of China (PBOC), told a financial news outlet affiliated with Xinhua News Agency. The cabinet's Financial Stability and Development Commission (FSDC), which is headed by Vice Premier Liu He, should coordinate fiscal, monetary policies, Macro Prudential Assessment(MPA) and micro-level regulations, Ma said.

    Exclusive: China eyes infrastructure boost to cushion growth as trade war escalates - sources

    China plans to put more money into infrastructure projects and ease borrowing curbs on local governments to help soften the blow to the economy from the Sino-U.S. trade war, policy sources told Reuters. China's trade war with the United States has clouded the outlook for the world's second-largest economy and roiled financial markets. A 4 trillion yuan ($590 billion) spending package in 2008-09 shielded China's economy from the global crisis but saddled local governments and state firms with piles of debt.

    China boosts liquidity, set for more policy easing as trade war threatens economy

    Chinese policymakers are pumping more liquidity into the financial system and channelling credit to small and medium-sized firms, and Beijing looks set to further loosen monetary conditions to mitigate threats to growth from a heated Sino-U.S. trade war. The world's second-biggest economy has already started to lose momentum this year as a government campaign to reduce a dangerous build-up of debt has lifted borrowing costs, hitting factory output, business investment and the property sector. On Wednesday, a source with direct knowledge of the matter said the People's Bank of China (PBOC) plans to introduce incentives that will boost the liquidity of commercial banks.

    China's central bank unexpectedly holds fire on rates as economy wobbles

    China's central bank left borrowing costs for interbank loans unchanged on Thursday, a surprising decision that shrugged off the U.S. Federal Reserve's policy rate increase and came as data showed the world's second-biggest economy lost more steam than expected. The People's Bank of China's (PBOC) on-hold stance highlighted uncertainty about the economic outlook as policy makers try to steer through the challenge of a trade spat with the United States and a government-led clampdown on debt. U.S. President Donald Trump is set to meet with his top trade advisers on Thursday to decide whether to activate threatened tariffs on billions of dollars in Chinese goods.

    China's central bank unexpectedly leaves rates unchanged for reverse repos

    China's central bank left borrowing costs for interbank loans unchanged on Thursday, an unexpected decision that shrugged off the U.S. Federal Reserve's increase in its benchmark rate overnight. Reverse repos are one of its most commonly used tools to control liquidity in the financial system. The PBOC did not change its benchmark one-year lending and deposit rates, which have been kept steady since October 2015.

    China to aid cross-border yuan flows ahead of MSCI inclusion

    China's central bank announced a series of measures on Friday to support cross-border fund flows, in an apparent effort to avoid a potential liquidity crunch in the offshore yuan market around June 1, when Chinese shares will be included in MSCI's benchmark indexes. China's MSCI entry is expected to trigger a surge in foreign money flows into yuan-denominated A shares, largely via cross-border stock connect schemes with Hong Kong, potentially boosting demand for the offshore yuan. The People's Bank of China (PBOC) said in a statement that banks involved in offshore yuan clearing and settlement can tap liquidity from the onshore market, while urging clearing banks to come up with contingency plans to deal with liquidity risks.

    Germany's DZ Bank to sell parts of DVB after muted interest for whole business - sources

    LONDON/FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Germany's No.2 lender DZ Bank plans to sell certain assets of its troubled ship and aircraft financing division DVB after receiving muted interest for the whole business, four sources familiar with the matter said. The sources, who declined to be identified due to the sensitivity of the matter, said DZ Bank, which is also the umbrella organisation of German cooperative bank chain Raiffeisen-Volksbanken, would start by selling DVB's aviation and land transport finance portfolios, followed by its shipping and offshore portfolios. Two of the sources said asset managers Apollo Global Management (APO.N) and Cerberus Capital Management were interested in the aviation segment.

    China's Big Five banks log fastest first-quarter profit growth in four years

    BEIJING/SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China's Big Five state-owned banks posted their fastest first-quarter net profit growth in four years, while their ratio of soured debt remained steady. China's biggest lenders are in the midst of a revival, posting faster profit growth and generally healthier net interest margins after years of rising bad debt as economic growth slowed down. On Friday, Agricultural Bank of China Ltd (AgBank), reported a 5.43 percent rise in first-quarter net profit, while the country's largest bank, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Ltd (ICBC), said its net profit grew 4 percent over the same period.

    China to cut RRR further, M2 growth seen accelerating - MNI

    China will further cut the amount of cash that lenders must keep in reserves, and broad M2 money supply growth will accelerate this year, Market News International reported on Tuesday, citing a source close to the central bank. The report comes amid growing speculation that China is considering shifting its monetary policy to a looser bias, as the threat of a trade war with the United States adds to worries about an expected slowdown in the world's second-largest economy in coming months. The People's Bank of China (PBOC) last week cut reserve requirement ratios (RRR) for most banks, hours after the statistics bureau reported softer-than-expected industrial output and investment growth for March, suggesting economic momentum may already be starting to slow.
