China Tightens Currency Controls To Curb Inflows

From AP:

China has issued new controls on transfers of foreign currencies, moving to contain inflationary pressures by curbing the speculative inflows, or so-called , that has been flooding into the country in recent years.

The new rules, issued late Wednesday with immediate effect, call for penalties of up to 30 percent of the capital involved in any unauthorized inward or outward foreign transfers. They give authorities stronger control over such transactions and expand reporting requirements for financial institutions.

“As China’s economy becomes more internationalized and the movement of international capital flows accelerates, there is a need to improve the system and oversight of multinational capital movements,” the State Administration of Foreign Exchange, or SAFE, said in a statement posted on its Web site.
