Chinese People's Bank's new manager supports free market
President Xi Jinping brought an economist, known in the United States as a free market supporter, to his executive seat. Yi Gang, who previously served as Executive Vice President at the PBOC, took over the task from Zhou Xiaochuan, who has been managing the public bank for 15 years.
President Xi is taking steps to create a new economic policy by bringing similar-minded party members into strong positions.
The most prominent of these changes was the promotion of Liu He as Deputy Prime Minister. With this promotion, Liu He was brought to the position of central bank inspector, which means that the country has become an economic victor with an effective role.

Eswar Prasad, former professor at Cornell University and former chairman of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) China, said: "Liu and Yi have a common understanding of the need to combine market reform and liberalization with more effective regulation." He has comment.
Yi Gang spoke in a press statement last week about how China's capital balances of liberalization seem necessary to encourage foreign companies to invest in China. Likewise, it is observed recently that many press conferences have expressed opinions on ways to encourage foreign investment.
Although President Xi is not included in the plan to launch a cross-border flow of capital in the October congress of the past year, when he presents a development plan, it is certainly one of the obvious targets of his predecessors.
Unlike its Western counterparts, the People's Bank of China is not an independent institution. Leaders are shaping the bank's policy with the task of determining credit and deposit rates. Ironically, these strict controls over the Yuan pave the way for the use of digital currencies in the money market.
