The People's Bank of China (PBoC) held its benchmark interest rates steady on May 20th, as widely expected, as policymakers adopted a wait-and-see approach after data suggested the economic recovery in April and May had been much better than market forecasts. Still, investors expect Chinese authorities to launch more aggressive monetary and fiscal stimulus in coming weeks, possibly at China's annual National People's Congress (NPC) session starting on May 22nd. The one-year loan prime rate (LPR) was left unchanged at 3.85 percent from the previous monthly fixing while the five-year remained at 4.65 percent.
