China eases some entry rules for foreign insurers, banks

China removed some entry barriers for foreign insurers and banks on Oct. 15, as the world's second-largest economy continues to open its financial sector to foreign investors, according to a same-day statement released by the State Council.

Foreign insurers now no longer need 30 years of operating experience before applying to operate in China, and their operations in the country are allowed to sell stakes to foreign financial institutions, the release said. China's regulators unveiled these plans in July without specifying an effective date.

Also starting Oct. 15, foreign banks are no longer required to seek regulatory approval before operating Chinese yuan businesses in the country. The regulators announced the move in May without disclosing details.

Foreign investors hold 1.6% of the country's banking assets and 5.8% in the insurance sector, according to a speech by Guo Shuqing, chairman of China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission, in May.
