China central bank says to continue stable, neutral monetary policy

HONG KONG, Nov 17 (Reuters) - China's central bank said on late Friday that it will keep the yuan currency broadly stable, while maintaining a stable and neutral monetary policy.

The People's Bank of China will also fend off systemic risks and use multiple monetary policy tools to ensure financial stability in the world's second largest economy, it said in its third-quarter monetary policy implementation report.
