China’s central bank cuts medium-term rate

WUHAN, Feb. 14, 2020 (Xinhua) -- Mobile photo taken on Feb. 14, 2020 shows Gao Yongzhe (L) and Huang Wenli posing for a photo gesturing a heart-shaped sign at "Wuhan Livingroom" in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province. Doctor Gao Yongzhe and nurse Huang Wenli are a couple working at the frontline against the novel coronavirus. Although they both spend all day at "Wuhan Livingroom", a temporary hospital, the busy couple barely had time to meet each other. On Feb. 14, under the arrangement of the hospital, the couple met and had a lunch together. As Huang put it, it was their special and meaningful 23rd Valentine's Day even though there was no flower and gift. (Photo by Gao Xiang/Xinhua/IANS) by .

China’s central bank on Monday cut the interest rate on its medium-term loans by 10 basis points to 3.15 per cent amid attempts to reduce the economic impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the country where 70,548 people have been infected.

The People’s Bank of China said the rate on 200 billion yuan ($28.65 billion) worth of one-year medium-term lending facility (MLF) loans to financial institutions was being reduced from 3.25 per cent.

On November 5, the central bank had cut the interest rate on one-year MLF loans by five basis points from 3.30 per cent to 3.25 per cent, the first reduction in this indicator since 2016, media reported.

Earlier this month, in an attempt to counter the economic effects of the coronavirus outbreak, the institution had also lowered interest rates on repurchase agreements, known as repo, to 2.4 per cent.

The latest cut in the rates of one-year MLF loans could pave the way for a reduction in China’s benchmark lending rate, which has stood at 4.15 per cent since November.
