PBOC cuts interest rates by 10bps
The People's Bank of China, the country's central bank, cut key policy interest rates by 10 basis points on Monday, a move aimed at helping facilitate the country's economic recovery.
The PBOC conducted 400 billion yuan ($59.2 billion) in medium-term lending facility operations on Monday at an interest rate of 2.75 percent, down from 2.85 percent a month earlier, the central bank said. The MLF interest rate is used as a policy benchmark for one-year interest rates.
The central bank said it also lowered the interest rate of seven-day reverse repos from 2.1 percent to 2 percent in its 2 billion yuan worth of reverse repo operations on Monday, fully satisfying financial institutions' needs.
