BEIJING: China’s central bank said on Wednesday it will increase its relending quota for small and medium-sized banks by 50 billion yuan ($7.27 billion) to boost credit for small and private firms.

The total relending quota under the scheme will be increased to 369.5 billion yuan, the People’s Bank of China said in a statement on its website.

The government has been providing more support for small firms as economic growth cools to near 30-year lows.
