Under the arrangement, MAS and PBC can access liquidity in each other’s currencies to support the financing of trade and investment, and to stabilise financial markets. Up to CNY300 billion in Chinese Yuan liquidity and SGD65 billion in Singapore Dollar liquidity will be available to financial institutions operating in Singapore and China respectively. The BCSA renewal was signed by MAS Managing Director Ravi Menon and PBC Governor Yi Gang and was effective from 13 July 2022.
