Chinese Central Bank: Beijing will promote economic recovery while reducing risks

According to , Ban stated in the report published on the bank’s website that the central bank will make its policy more “accurate and effective” while directing financial institutions to reduce real lending interest rates and reduce financial costs for companies and individuals.
Ban added in the report that efforts will be made to revitalize capital markets and enhance investor confidence. The report identified the authorities’ priorities in the short term and was submitted to the country’s parliament.
