PBoC handed leading role in macro-prudential policy

Shake-up of PBoC’s governance structure sees central bank gain macro-prudential department

The new PBoC department is charged with both overseeing the financial sector and promoting the global role of the yuan

The People’s Bank of China has gained a macro-prudential policy department, as the Chinese Communist Party signals the central bank’s “leading” role in financial stability.

A document published on February 2 by the State Commission Office of Public Sector Reform says the central bank will establish a new department to lead the creation of a macro-prudential policy framework. The department will maintain supervisory mechanisms for overseeing systemically important financial institutions.
