According to SAFE, the major task for foreign exchange management this year is to enhan

Xie Yaxuan, chief analyst at China Merchants Securities, said there is a global tren
d where countries with large holdings of reserves tend to focus on long-term and relatively stable inves上海会所
tments, such as infrastructure construction, to hedge against potential fluctuations in bond and equity markets.
“A shift toward using domestic currency is another trend,” he added.上海会所
Profitability is generally accepted by the world’s major central banks as the
prime objective for reserve management, in addition to safety and liquidity. The em
上海会所品茶微信phasis on the return objective has generally increased over time, according to experts.
SAFE said in its annual report that China had achieved a 10-year return rate of 3.68
percent on average on its foreign exchange reserve investments from 2005 to 2014.
Wang Chunying, a spokeswoman for SAFE, said the investment retu上海会所
rn rate was at a relatively good level compared with those of global peers.
“China’s forex reserve currency structure is diversified, even more diversifie
d than the global level on average,” Wang said. “It is in line with the requirements of China’s e上海会所品茶微信
conomic and trade development, as well as the demand for international payments.”
Prospective returns on China’s vast foreign exchange reserves are likely to remain

ncial environment in the long term, Chen Yuan, a former deputy governor of the central bank and former vice-ch
irman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, said at a forum on Aug 10.
上海乌托邦品茶微信”Previously, we identified the foreign exchange reserves as an important milestone for ec
onomic development and society’s core wealth. Now, we have to reposition the foreign exchange market,” he added.
According to Chen, faced with new challenges, including foreign exchange rate issues raised by the United States rec上海乌托邦
ently, the priority is to keep these reserves safe, and strengthen the renminbi’s position globally.
Chen sees potential in foreign exchange rate risks, as the majority of China-reserved foreign assets are in US dollars.
Late last month, the State Administration of Foreign Exchange, or SAFE, C
hina’s forex regulator, said the country’s foreign exchange reserves held in US dollars
上海乌托邦accounted for 58 percent of the total by the end of 2014, down from 79 percent in 1995.
Among global foreign exchange reserves, assets held in US dollars comprised 65 percent of
the total by 2014, up from 59 percent in 1995, according to SAFE’s annual report last year.上海乌托邦
For the first time, SAFE made public the currency composition of the
forex reserves, after first reporting data to the Currency Composition of Foreign
上海乌托邦Exchange Reserves, or COFER, an International Monetary Fund database, in 2015.
According to COFER, which keeps quarterly data on the currency composition of official上海乌托邦品茶微信
foreign exchange reserves, the world’s forex reserves reached $11.59 trillion in the fir
st quarter of this year. Some 58.14 percent of the total was in US dollars, compared with 1.8 percent in renminbi.

His first series of Dimoo World had the little boy wearing various animal costumes, ranging from a panda to a bluebird and all have Dimoo’s signature eyes.
上海楼凤”It’s a reflection of my life. People love Dimoo because we share similar stories growing up,” says the de
signer, who has 20 dogs and cats, plus 12 turtles, which “have become her sources of inspiration”.
The trend of designer toys first started in Hong Kong in the 1990s and was influenced by Japan, South Korea and上海楼凤女神会所
the West in the 2000s, according to Wang Ning. The trend is inevitable, given the country’s strong economy, he says.
“Designer toys satisfy the spiritual needs of young Chinese consumers. T

“It’s still evolving but has already become a phenomenon.”
The designer held three fan meetings during the show, which attracted hundreds.

China will link the personal mortgage loan rate to a new lending rate reference, starting fr

For purchasing the first house, individual borrowers of new mortgage loan will pay an intere
上海419论坛品茶微信st rate of no less than 4.85 percent – it is the five-year loan prime rate, or LPR, th
e new reference of bank lending reported by the People’s Bank of China, the central bank, on Aug 20.
Buyers of second house should pay an interest rate that is 0.6 perc上海419论坛

The existing mortgage loans, with the contracts signed earlier than Oct 8, will keep the old interest rates unchanged, it added.

Liu Guoqiang, a vice-governor of the PBOC, said at a press
