SHANGHAI, June 2 (Reuters) - China's central bank said on Sunday that liquidity in the banking system is reasonably ample, and that it would use various monetary policy tools including medium-term facility loans and reverse repurchase agreements to stabilise money markets.
The People's Bank of China (PBOC) said it would boost medium- and small-sized banking liquidity through relatively low reserve requirements for such banks.
A previously announced phased cut to reserve requirements is expected to release 100 billion yuan ($14.49 billion) in long-term liquidity to medium- and small-sized banks on June 17, the PBOC said.
The PBOC said a recent regulatory takeover of Inner Mongolia-based Baoshang Bank was a standalone case, and that regulators have no plans for further takeovers at present. ($1 = 6.9027 Chinese yuan) (Reporting by Andrew Galbraith, editing by Deepa Babington)
