For the private equity firm boss, deeper ties between the two countries are the key to improving the relationship.

The PBOC has outlined its key priorities and tasks for 2020 after a two-day meeting to set its policy agenda, pledging to win the battle to defuse financial risks, improve and expand the scope of its macro-prudential regulation, and strengthen counter-cyclical policies to support economic growth.
China’s central bank said it had neither issued any digital currency nor authorized asset-trading platforms to deal in one, as rumors swirled about its mooted issuance of a state-backed digital currency.
China has decided to remove the caps on how much overseas investors can invest in the country through certain programs, in a move to further open up the country’s financial markets.
