China injected 1.45 trillion yuan ($200 billion) of cash into the banking system through one-year policy loans

This is the 12th consecutive month of cash injections and the largest net injection since 2016.

The injection of cash aims to bolster economic growth and address concerns over a liquidity crunch.

The rate on the one-year policy loans was kept at 2.5%.

The cash injection may support the issuance of more bonds by central and local governments to fund stimulus measures.
