MNI China Press Digest, Nov 5: Yuan, Fiscal Policy, Open-Up

     BEIJING (MNI) - The following are highlights from Chinese press reports on
     China's yuan could rebound against the dollar in the near term due to
market expectations that China's economy will stabilize in Q4, according to a
report in the China Securities Journal. Citing unnamed analysts, the report said
the weakening U.S. economy would also see the dollar index weaken. The PBOC's
scheduled issuance of central bank bills in Hong Kong on Thursday would solidify
expectations that the currency would appreciate, the newspaper said. The yuan
dollar pair has been trading stronger than the central parity rate set by the
PBOC since end-October, and the gap between onshore and offshore yuan has been
narrowing, the Journal's report said.
     China needs further synergy between monetary and fiscal policy to stabilize
development and push forward economic reforms, People's Daily said in its
commentary Tuesday. Fiscal policies, such as tax cuts and special bond issuance
by local governments, should work together with monetary policies to better
develop the economy and prevent financial risks, the newspaper said.
     China will relax restrictions on foreign shareholdings and support the
participation of financial institutions in the establishment of commercial banks
and financial subsidiaries, according to website The
site quoted Huang Hong, vice chairman of the China Banking and Insurance
Regulatory Commission, as the source for its article published Tuesday.
