China increases reserve ratio to cut inflation

Text size Aa Aa

The Chinese central bank is raising banks’ reserve requirements for the second time in two weeks. This takes the reserve ratio for big banks up to a record high at 18.5 per cent.

This move should keep about 350 billion yuan – or 38.5 billion euros – out of circulation and reduce inflation.

The increase will take effect on November 29th.
