中国 サンデー利下げ

「中国 サンデー利下げ」
*中国人民銀行は10日、政策金利である銀行の貸し出しと、預金の基準金利の引き下げを決めた。貸出金利(期間1年)を0.25%下げて5.1%、預金金利(同)も0.25%下げて2.25%とする

BEIJING -- The People's Bank of China (PBOC) on Sunday announced that it will cut thebenchmark deposit and loan interest rates by 25 basis points (bps) starting May 11.

After the cut, the one-year deposit rate will stand at 2.25 percent, and one-year lending rateat 5.1 percent, according to the announcement.

It was the third rate cut by the PBOC since last November and the latest effort of thecountry's policy makers to tackle the increasing pressure from economic slowdown.

The move aims to lower funding costs to bolster the real economy and ensure a modestmonetary environment amid the ongoing national economic restructuring.

The central bank also decided to adjust the upper limit of the floating band of deposit rates to1.5 times the benchmark from the previous 1.3 times, marking further step to liberalize theinterest rates mechanism.

"Currently, the pace of domestic economic restructuring is quickening and the fluctuation ofexternal demand is relatively big. China's economy is still facing relatively big downwardpressure," the central bank said.

Liquidity in the banking system is generally adequate and market interest rates are falling,providing a good window to open up the upper limit for deposit rates, it said.

The central bank has now cut interest rates and relaxed banks' reserve requirements fivetimes in six months, and many economists expect more easing measures over the course ofthe year.
