MNI (Singapore)

The benchmark Loan Prime Rate has room to be lowered following the People’s Bank of China’s 25bp cut to banks’ reserve requirement ratio last Friday, Caixin reported citing Sheng Songcheng, former director of the surveys and statistics department at PBOC. The PBOC said in its Q3 monetary policy report that it would promote lower costs of corporate financing and individual borrowing for consumption, which indicated a lower LPR, said Sheng.

China’s real estate sector will see a soft landing, though it will take time, Sheng added.
