There is room for the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) to lower the reserve requirement ratio, but such room is much smaller than a few years ago, Yi Gang, governor of the People’s Bank of China (PBOC) said on Sunday, according to Xinhua.  

China’s overall reserve ratio, or required reserve ratio plus excess reserve ratio, currently stands at roughly 12 percent.  

Since the beginning of 2018, the central bank has lowered the reserve requirement ratio by a total of 3.5 percentage points in five cuts.
