BEIJING, March 11 China is likely to liberalise
deposit rates in one to two years, central bank Governor Zhou
Xiaochuan said on Tuesday at a media conference at China's
annual palriament session.
"Deposit rate liberalisation is on our agenda. Personally I
think it's very likely to be realised within one or two years,"
Market talk has been rife that the central bank is quietly
loosening policy to support economic growth as short-term money
rates and the yuan weakened on Monday after
surprisingly weak exports data at the weekend.
