BEIJING, June 4 (Xinhua) -- China's banking and insurance regulator on Thursday pledged continued efforts to help micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) overcome coronavirus-related challenges and take the country's reform and opening-up in the financial sector to a deeper level.

A spokesperson for the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission said the commission will fully implement policies such as allowing SMEs to delay the repayment of capital and interest. It will also guide major banks in meeting the target of achieving growth in their lending to SMEs of more than 40 percent.

The banking and insurance industry will increase funding support for new infrastructure, new urbanization initiatives and major projects, and step up efforts in financial poverty alleviation, he told reporters.

The commission will push for broader and deeper opening up in the financial sector on the condition that financial security can be assured. It supports the active participation of foreign investment in China's financial market, and encourages Chinese and foreign financial institutions to enhance cooperation in areas including products, management and personnel training, he said.

The commission will explore avenues of replenishing the capital of small and medium banks, such as the introduction of foreign or private investors through market means, as well as mergers, reorganizations and equity investment that are compliant with laws and regulations, he said.

The spokesperson also dismissed concerns about the prosperity and stability of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and its status as an international financial center following the recently approved national security legislation.

With its sound legal and financial system, a large number of high-caliber financial professionals, strong economic foundation and world-class business environment, Hong Kong can deal with all kinds of challenges, he said. The international market's confidence in Hong Kong remains undiminished, he noted, as its financial market has been running smoothly, the linked exchange rate regime remains stable, and there have been no abnormal financial outflows.

Mainland banking and insurance institutions will continue broad financial cooperation with their Hong Kong counterparts as a concrete move to support Hong Kong's prosperity and stability, he added.

 

北京,6月4日(新华社)——周四,中国银行和保险监管机构承诺将继续努力帮助中小微企业克服冠状病毒相关的挑战,并将国家金融领域的改革开放推向更深层次。


中国银行和保险监督管理委员会的一名发言人表示,银监会将全面落实允许中小企业延迟还本付息等政策。引导各大银行实现中小企业贷款增长40%以上目标。


他告诉记者,银行业和保险业将增加对新基础设施、新型城镇化举措和重大项目的资金支持,并加大金融扶贫力度。


欧盟委员会将在确保金融安全的前提下,推动更广泛、更深入地开放金融领域。中国政府支持外资积极参与中国金融市场,鼓励中外金融机构加强在产品、管理、人才培训等领域的合作。


他说,银监会将探索补充中小银行资本的途径,例如通过市场手段引入外国或私人投资者,以及并购、重组和符合法律法规的股权投资。


该发言人还驳斥了最近通过的国家安全立法对香港特别行政区的繁荣和稳定及其作为国际金融中心地位的担忧。


他说,香港有健全的法律和金融体系,有大批高素质的金融人才,有雄厚的经济基础,有世界级的营商环境,可以应付各种挑战。他指出,香港的金融市场运作平稳,联系汇率制度保持稳定,而且没有出现异常的资金外流,因此国际市场对香港的信心并未减低。


他补充说,内地银行和保险机构将继续与香港同行进行广泛的金融合作,以支持香港的繁荣和稳定。
