China plans to create vast new financial regulator

China plans to create a national financial regulatory body that will oversee all parts of the financial industry other than securities, absorbing the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission in the process, the State Council said Tuesday.

The new regulator, which has yet to be officially named, will take over the responsibilities for financial consumer protection and day-to-day supervision of financial holding companies from the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), as well as investor protection from the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC), according to a proposal offered at this year’s annual meeting of the National People’s Congress, the country’s top legislature.

The diplomat also rejected Western countries’ rationale for their pressure and sanctions against China on the Russia-Ukraine conflict, reiterating that China has not provided weapons to either side.

China sees land sales flat at $1.1 trillion this year

China’s 2023 national budget released Sunday suggests local governments’ revenue from land sales will remain sluggish as cash-strapped property developers are reluctant to buy land to start new projects amid weak sales.

Revenue of government-managed funds, mainly from sales of land-use rights to property developers, plunged more than 20% to 7.8 trillion yuan ($1.1 trillion) in 2022. Such revenue is expected to edge up 0.4% this year, the Ministry of Finance said in its budget report submitted Sunday to the National People’s Congress, the country’s top legislature.
