SHANGHAI: China's central bank increased its short-term fund injection on Wednesday (Oct 20) by offering 100 billion yuan (US$15.67 billion) through seven-day reverse repos into the banking system.

The People's Bank of China (PBOC) attributed the move to countering factors including tax payments and government bond issuance in order to keep banking system liquidity reasonably ample, it said in an online statement.

With 10 billion yuan worth of reverse repos maturing on Wednesday, the central bank injected 90 billion yuan on a net basis on the day.
