China outstanding MLF at 3,560.0 bln yuan at end-April

BEIJING, May 5 (Reuters) - China's outstanding medium-term lending facility (MLF) was at 3,560.0 billion yuan ($528.68 billion) at end-April, compared with 3,726.5 billion yuan at end-March, the central bank said on Sunday.

The People's Bank of China (PBOC) extended 200 billion yuan via its one-year MLF in April, it said in a statement on its website.

The PBOC uses the MLF and the standing lending facility as tools for managing short- and medium-term liquidity in the country's banking system.
