China’s Yi Says Conditions Ripe to Open Capital Account

China will push ahead with opening its capital account because current economic conditions are favorable, said Yi Gang, deputy governor of the nation’s central bank.

“I see lot of favorable conditions that are suitable for further liberalization in capital account,” Yi said during International Monetary Fund meetings in Washington yesterday. “In running an open economy you really need the capital account to be pretty much convertible.”
