The central bank will enact stable monetary policies and seek to control fluidity, channeling credit funds to real businesses, especially agricultural and small and medium-sized enterprises, according to the central bank.

The central bank will also improve yuan exchange rate formation mechanisms, according to discussions at the meeting.

On Saturday, Chinese officials said the nation's inflation rate rose 5.1 percent in November year-on-year, which was a 28-month high.
