    In a latest report published by Fitch via Reuters, the ratings agency noted that the recent RR cut by the PBOC could fuel increased lending growth by the Chinese banks, which would result in more bank risks.

    Key Headlines from Fitch report:

    Next week's National People's Congress meeting should provide further information on the direction of Chinese economic policy and structural reform

    negative, with leverage in the economy already high

    Expects China's credit growth will continue slowing in 2016 to 13%
