BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

China to set up deposit insurance system


BEIJING, China— The Chinese government plans to set up a deposit insurance system that will cover all deposit-taking financial institutions, according to the official Xinhua News Agency.

"Now is the best timing to set up the deposit insurance system and we must not miss it," Wei Jianing, a researcher with the National Development and Reform Commission, told Xinhua.

The researcher did not say when the system would be launched.

"The system aims to set up a market-based risk compensation mechanism and apportion financial losses rationally when financial institutions are closed down...It is conducive for the stability of the financial system," he added.

China currently operates an implicit deposit insurance mechanism whereby the central bank or local governments bail out bankrupt financial institutions through large capital injections with government funds.
