PARIS (Reuters) - French bank Credit Agricole (CAGR.PA) said it was setting up a so-called “Panda” bond issuance program in order to gain access to the onshore Chinese interbank bond market.

A Panda bond is issued in the onshore Chinese interbank bond market by a foreign issuer, and is denominated in Chinese yuan.

Credit Agricole’s Panda bond issuance program has been set with a program cap of up to 5 billion Chinese yuan ($714 million), and the proceeds will help the company fund its Chinese subsidiary based in Shanghai.
