China Cuts Interest Rate Again

On rate cuts, China is moving in sync with the rest of the world.

Mentioned: , , , , , ,

China's central bank cut its benchmark interest rate by 27 basis points on Wednesday, after a coordinated rate cut took place in several major economies of the world. This is China's second rate cut within a month. Now the one-year lending and deposit rates stand at 6.93% and 3.87%.

While the rate cut is insignificant in magnitude, the move has indicated China's willingness to join the global financial community as a stakeholder to tackle the current crisis. With reliance on export-driven growth and significant holdings of U.S. Treasury bills, China has found itself increasingly integrated into the global economy.
