China's central bank injects 240 bln yuan into market Thursday

May 28, 2020


Abstract : China's central bank on Thursday continued to pump cash into the financial system via reverse repos to maintain liquidity in the market.

BEIJING, May 28 (Xinhua) -- China's central bank on Thursday continued to pump cash into the financial system via reverse repos to maintain liquidity in the market.

The People's Bank of China injected 240 billion yuan (about 33.67 billion U.S. dollars) into the market through seven-day reverse repos at an interest rate of 2.2 percent, according to a statement on the website of the central bank.

The move aims to offset the impact of factors including government bond issuance and final settlement of corporate income tax, and keep liquidity in the banking system at a reasonably sufficient level, the statement said.

As no reverse repos matured Thursday, this led to a net injection of 240 billion yuan into the market.

A reverse repo is a process in which the central bank purchases securities from commercial banks through bidding, with an agreement to sell them back in the future.

China's central bank pledged in its first-quarter monetary policy report that it will step up counter-cyclical adjustments to support the real economy, make the prudent monetary policy more flexible and appropriate, and continue to deepen the reforms of the market-oriented interest rate and the yuan exchange rate formation system.
