CORRECTED-China expects cross-border capital flows to remain stable in 2018

(Corrects the year for current account surplus in last paragraph to 2017, not 2018)

BEIJING, March 29 (Reuters) - China's foreign exchange regulator said on Thursday it expects cross-border capital flows to remain basically stable and for the country's current account surplus to remain at a reasonable level in 2018.

The State Administration of Foreign Exchange said in a statement its 2017 current account surplus of $164.9 billion was the equivalent of 1.3 percent of the country's gross domestic product. (Reporting by Beijing Monitoring Desk; Editing by Nick Macfie)
