China is likely to invest over USD one trillion overseas and import USD 10 trillion commodities over the next five years, Premier Li Keqiang has said as the world's second largest economy looks to invest its record USD 3.50 trillion forex reserves abroad to utilise it to spur growth. Although China's economic growth has slowed, growth volume is increasing annually, Li spoke at an economic and trade forum of China and Central and Eastern European countries in Suzhou, Jiangsu province yesterday.
Baidu has teamed up with Allianz, the European financial services company, in a bid to launch an online insurance service in China. The joint venture will also include Hillhouse capital, according to a report by the Financial Times.
Online insurance in China is growing rapidly. Statistics from the Insurance Association of China show that in the first half of 2015 revenues from Chinese insurance premiums sold online reached 82 billion RMB, a 206% increase on the same period in 2014.
China's economic slowdown could pose risks for the euro area ranging from falling exports, capital outflows and exchange rate fluctuations, the European Central Bank (ECB) said on Wednesday.
China is now the second-biggest economy after the U.S. and plays an increasingly major role in global trade. Its economy has slowed each year since 2010 and is seen continuing to do so until at least 2016, when the International Monetary Fund forecasts growth of 6.3 percent.
A top Chinese health official has denied that the country’s new organ transplant system allows organs to be harvested from executed prisoners, saying that earlier comments he made suggesting that a loophole allowed the practice to continue had been misconstrued.
Three Chinese university chiefs have been “named and shamed” for allegedly engaging in illicit acts of “hedonism and dishonesty”.
The punishments – the latest example of president Xi Jinping’s offensive against corruption within the Communist party – were dished out to top officials at the Communication University of China, state media reported on Tuesday. It said two were sacked and another was disciplined.
After lengthy negotiations, Alibaba founder Jack Ma may be close to an investment in the publisher of the South China Morning Post, according to reports in Bloomberg, the New York Times, and Caixin.
Neither party has commented publicly about a deal, and it is unclear whether Ma would buy all or some of the SCMP Group. He already has a media empire that rivals Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, and has invested in two US-based social media apps—Tango and Snapchat. But the maybe-pending SCMP bid has already attracted nearly as much attention as any of those done deals.
Ant Financial Services Group, Alibaba’s financial affiliate, has launched a beta version of their long-awaited online equity crowdfunding platform, ANTSDAQ.
ANTSDAQ has set limits for investors to meet Chinese financial regulations in line with other local equity crowdfunding sites.
China's biggest brokerage, Citic Securities, overstated its derivative business by $166bn (£110bn) from April to September, according to the country's securities association.
The Securities Association of China said the firm inaccurately inflated the amount of its equity swap transactions in a report submitted in October.
Citic said the error occurred due to a system upgrade and has been corrected.
During important events in China in recent years — from international summit meetings to sporting events and military parades — the government has resorted to ordering smoggy skies to turn blue. Apparently, the skies dare not disobey.
This involves ordering cars off of the capital's streets, and shutting down factories across much of north China.
But China's leaders seem to realize that clearing skies by diktat is not a solution. As part of its pledge to cap carbon emissions by the year 2030, China is now building what could become the world's largest carbon market.
Chinese state-run media has called for children born outside the country’s one-child policy to be given crucial household registration documents, an issue that has left as many as 13 million people in legal limbo.
Compared to his predecessor Hu Jintao, China seems on the move under president Xi Jinping. But is he really. Journalist Ian Johnson wonders in the New York Review of Books after three years of Xi rule whether under the cosmetic moves, so much is changing.
Strengthening the People’s Bank of China’s regulatory clout is high on a list of suggestions for improving financial market oversight following last summer’s stock market crash.
As supporters of the plan see it, no government institution is in a better position to improve stock trading controls, manage Internet-only banks, and close regulatory loopholes than the central bank.
