China QFII quota at 111.38 bln USD

September 02, 2019


Abstract : A total of 292 overseas institutions have received quotas amounting to about 111.38 billion U.S. dollars under China's Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors (QFII) program to move money into the country's capital account, according to the State Administration of Foreign Exchange.

BEIJING, Sept. 2 (Xinhua) -- A total of 292 overseas institutions have received quotas amounting to about 111.38 billion U.S. dollars under China's Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors (QFII) program to move money into the country's capital account, according to the State Administration of Foreign Exchange.

As of Aug. 30, the quota in the RMB Qualified Foreign Institutional Investors (RQFII) program came in at 693.3 billion yuan (about 97.8 billion U.S. dollars).

China's currency, the yuan, is convertible for trade purposes under the current account, while the capital account, which covers portfolio investment and borrowing, is largely run by the state in an effort to control capital flows in and out of the country.

To gradually open the capital account, the government introduced the QFII and RQFII programs in 2003 and 2011, respectively. They give foreign investors the right to move money into the account to encourage controlled flows.

The Qualified Domestic Institutional Investor program, a scheme that allows domestic investors to access foreign assets, totalled 104 billion U.S. dollars.
