The People’s Bank of China (PBOC), the central bank, said on Aug 7 that it would maintain continuity and stability in its monetary policy.
In the next stage, the PBOC will continue with a prudent monetary policy and fine tune it in light of changes to create a financial environment conducive to the structural adjustment and upgrading of the Chinese economy, it said in its monetary policy report for the second quarter.
It will employ multiple monetary policy tools to maintain “moderate” liquidity and try to lower financing costs so that the real economy can benefit from financial services.
The central bank vowed to maintain financial stability and avoid systemic and regional financial risks.
Effort will be made to improve the RMB exchange rate market formation mechanism and make the exchange rate regime more flexible in its two-way movement, it added.
